canson experiment

This is the result of the Canson Mi-Teintes rework experiment. I brushed the old painting with mineral spirits, wiped it off and applied pastel. Wiped the whole thing off again and applied large areas of three colors to begin again. By now, the tooth of the paper was filled and the whole thing turned into a finger painting (I wear gloves). The dots are from me dipping my fingertips in the pastel dust tray and striking the paper randomly. Also, I painted this whole thing upside down. I didn't decide it belonged this way until I was finished.
