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.
