Pastel 16 - Girl Riding
It took a lot of looking and turning this piece before the ball point lines began to resolve themselves into something I could grip with the Sharpie. Then more and more characters emerged. I like that this one is not pastel all over - it breathes more. It's more flat than others - that's OK too - it's simple.
The deer/fox feels like a creature from one of my dreams. As does the long legged rabbit (?) in the front. I like the girl's confident seat and casually draped arm over the proud flightless bird.
