This was an experiment using pastels washed with mineral spirits, then more pastel on top. (A couple process pics are below the cut if anyone would like to see the steps.)
Thanks to @maria-of-all-trades for the lovely Creativity Bracelet, which definitely helped. :-) Also to all of the fun and creative spirit from @passing-fanciful (and the Art Kraken), @phiralovesloki, @brooke-to-broch, @zengoalie, @thisisevenharderthannamingablog, and @wingedlioness. Hugs, darlings. :-)
