Sentinels of the Night. Done with a new Stabilo CarbOthello water soluble pastel pencils. The initial drawing was just like regular pastels. I blended them with a Q-tip. Instead of fixing it with a fixative, I applied a light wash of water over the entire drawing. Some additional blending came as I applied the water.

A very different medium. Will have to see how much more I can accomplish with wetting the colors more.

I like the title of this piece. The way you put the light house/tower alone under the immense sky, shows the arduous job and the immense responsibility it bears.
