Default Cougar WIP

I usually use a standard writing tip or small spoon shader. So as a change of pace I decided to do a little work with my Colwood's FT BR Round Heel. It's a sharp edged, angled edge shader that creates very fine lines when used along the edge or, laid on the flat and pulled, creates a graduated shading.

My progress is below and being worked on a 10" x 10" x 1/8" birch plywood. This is going along ... one hair at a time!
