thanks! I'm experimenting with using a medium with sand to paint over so that I can achieve a similar effect as the pastels. There is more drag when I use dry brush. This is the first large painting where I used it. I wanted a lot of texture in the tree trunk so I used a coarse pumice medium. Pretty cool
