For this one, I actually broke down and bought some acrylics and found a 3" brush in the laundry room which I taped to a paint stir stick.  I was immediately reminded why I don't use acrylics (or oils) and fought my way through this one. It still isn't finished and probably won't be - ever.
This confirmed that soft pastels are my medium: dry and all the colors sitting right in front of me - no mixing, no fuss, little clean up.   At least I now have a range of colors for the grandkids to use when painting bird houses"
