2.5 x 3.5 pan pastel on white art spectrum. For such a tiny thing, it's taken forever. First, had to wait for green yellow paint for background to dry, then fought with trying to use the pan pastel tools in a small area. Ended up using them and the tiniest Color Shapers size 0. Never knew I had them til they just showed up with the others for oil pastels. They took longer than waiting for paint to dry. Stroke by stroke and they don't carry much color.
We won't even mention fighting with the scanner...so in the spirit of...
and couldn't decide which colors from Picasa to use, so here's two:

All I can say is WOW. I didn't know anyone could do pastels on such a small scale. Beautiful work.

Oh crap...I see a cat face in your thistle...so sorry! I'm sure it's due to my need to go make faces on my floating heads (thistle heads that is)

I totally understand your use of the term "fight" in relation to the PanPastels, having been fighting with them myself for the past 2 weeks.
Your thistle turned out beautifully, though. I like the complementary colour scheme, too.
