Been working on this pastel for awhile...still have a ways to go but it is coming together.
It's 11 x 14 on Ampersand Pastelbord with soft pastels, mostly Ludwigs. The bright orange underpainting (see lower left corner for bare board) was done over the whole board with NeoColorII's. I wanted a really bright warm hue to show through.
I have a least a layer of soft pastels on everything except for the chair shape (lower left). Today I worked on the focus, the flowering bush.
