A3, pastel on paper. I love this way of obtaining in-between shades by optically mixing two or more colors - the retina tends to interpret a mix of the different colored strokes (which are laid cross-wise or in parallel) as a tertiary color. In case anyone is interested, here's more on this technique in Figure Stack (my figure blog)
