more blending with the fingers then fresh pastel applied with the side of the chalk directly on canvas.
the lines that you see have been rubbed with the finger.
the step that is missing here was wet pastel on canvas pad which came out muddy.
I simply skipped taking a photo.I should had if I didn't think my painting was ruined,
Departing from my own composition in watercolor I started a fuzzy realism project in soft pastel on canvas pad 9x12in.
Above are my steps.

I just added one more step which i believe is final.The idea behind this kind of loose pastel art is to create open pieces that is at any time you stop it can be considered a painting in itself. From a few strokes to more complex shapes and light impressionism is shown in this technique as open form.In this respect accuracy to likeness, precison, reliasm, dissapear and much is left to the imagination of the viewr who can add with their eyes the roundness of complete pictures.
