This digital image comes close to replicating the original but, by far, doesn't show the blending of colors.  The original is so much more vibrant (alive) I think, and each color makes a smooth transition to the next.  I love working on the Wallis paper because I can layer so many pastels on top of each other allowing them to blend themselves(this is called "scumbling").   The paper is like fine sand paper so using this method saves the skin on my pinky finger(what I traditionally use to blend pastels).
