Technique #12 3D multimedia

I started out painting the blue sky after making a "sun" with an oil pastel. I took a second sheet of the same weight paper and cut a "mountain" shape. I added the lavender streaks in the sky with a really expensive oil pastel that looks and acts like chalk. It's basically pressed pigment. I also used Caron D'ache neocolors (oil pastels), some water soluble oil pastels and more (brown and umber) expensive oil pastels. One of the thing that happened when I wetted the water soluble pastels with a wet brush was that when it touched the chalky pigmented oil pastels they turned to highly pigmented "paint".

Here you can see the various textures of the differing media. as I applied one it dragged into another combining and spreading the colors

I love this and it is just oil pastel with watercolor over it. It looks like a small flock of birds flying and the lavender soft "clouds" really make the sky dreamlike. I ended up using a spray fixative because the powdery pastels were smearing. That fixative was hairspray.
