gorgeous! i have a number of pastels drawings that look sort of similar in nature to this and many of your other paintings. wonderful. i'm going to request it for some of my groups! oh! i just saw that this is in a pastels group! are they pan pastels? those are what i use to make things like this. most people don't use them, but i discovered them on an art supply site and i love love love them. they're the only think i've seen create this kind of effect. wonderful work!
