Thanks for the kind comments all. I'm hoping I had a bit of a breakthrough with this one, I changed my approach in the way I applied the pastel, I used to never use the narrow end of a pastel, always trying to have all strokes as wide or broad as possible.

I always love color, the problem for me with pastel is finding the color I think I need. One thing that helped me pull this together at the end was to take my hardest pastel and use it as a blender over the soft pastel....of course it felt like I was ruining it at first.....this 'blending' was used in the background and foreground.
