Cloud patterns (and sky colours) over the mountains are often enormously varied and complex, and this picture captures that. Here I worked with pastels and a bit of watercolour (pencils and paints) on Canson Mi-teintes pale blue paper. I chose the more textured side just because I thought it would grip the pastel better. It didn't really grip at all -- if I hadn't been told this was paper for pastel I would never have guessed -- and I don't care for the mesh effect, really (clouds don't have grids, do they?). So this clearly won't be my go-to paper -- and when I do use it next time, I'll be sure to use the smoother side!
