pastel strata

Strata II (2011)
Continuing on with this week’s theme of layers, I chose to do a bit of dabbling with my rather neglected pastels.  This is just a quick sketch of the geological strata reaching up towards the stratosphere, and the meeting of land and sky, the layers blending, blurring until it’s difficult to tell where one ends and the other begins.
