Pastel on canvas with medium WIP

Just visited Lesley Finn's blog and read her post about mixed media using different kinds of pastels and mediums on canvas. Reminded me that I've got a painting I need to move on with. I took this 36 x 24 inch canvas to life drawing and drew the model from life with pastels (pink and yellow for some reason...). I sealed with acrylic medium as I went. Since then I've worked over it with more soft pastel and started to place her in the landscape - our local landscape which historically has been a gold mining area. The land continues to be raped by commercial interests (no apology to certain people who really don't like me to talk about it in those terms). Next step is to seal it again then decide how and with what to proceed.
