Red on Red work in progress - original oil pastel portrait

Today's experiment is just using reds and greens - although it's hard to see the greens (my photography, probably).  One of the things I experienced was using CrayPas on top of Sennelier, which should definitely not work.  But in using the Specialist sepia, I got lovely shading in the shadows - sort of like a glaze.  So, if it works over Sennelier, it would be sure to work over other oil pastels.  I really love the CrayPas Specialist colors and you should try the neon ones -exciting!  I'm going to work on this some more - thanks so much for stopping by!  How are you all liking to work with your oil pastels?
