I used oil pastels for this one, messiest medium in the world, but great smudgy tool for creating color that is solid at least. In each iteration of the motif, I find I have moved things around.

But in fact they must stay forever still (wonderful paradox of art), and in that eternal stillness, I want everybody standing (swimming) in the right spot.
