Thanks! I used a mixture of soft pastel sticks on the landscape ....and pastel pencils...mainly on the boat.
I've scanned half of it so you should be able to see it better than the photo.

Oh my! This one could have presented a lot of challenges but you've created a beautiful painting that beckons the viewer to get involved. I love the dapples shadows on the bridge and ... well...everything just flows nicely!
