Color Notes - work in progress

This painting - 10 x 8" on Pastelbord is nowhere near being finished, but I just wanted you to see all the colors - greens, blues, pinks, etc.  So much fun to do - just hope I don't mess it up.  Actually, I think it's harder to overwork an oil pastel than say, an oil, or soft pastel - and watercolor, oh my, don't even want to think about that!  I almost have to be restrained to keep from overworking watercolor.  It's just in my DNA.  Thanks for stopping by!
