Exploring different effects created by masking. The shape of burrow was sketched in, then the ground masked before working in with graphite and ink. Splatter, splatter for the snow while the mask was still on, but careful not to SPLAT a blob of white instead. Trees were created with a mask and smudged pastel.
Mostly ink and graphite on paper.
