Randy, would you mind posting your reference photo? It would help us to better comment on your painting. I'm wondering about the temperature of some of the colors.

Sure Karen. Here's the reference photo taken by a hunting friend.

How long have you been painting pastels. Did you do an under painting and with what??

Started painting again about 3 years ago. Prior to that I hadn't painted since high school (over 30 years ago). Did a couple of pastels when I restarted and switched to acrylics until 3 or 4 months ago when I picked up the pastels again.

Yes, I did a dry under painting using hard pastels with a brisk rub in. Most of the under painting was in a pale ochre for the sky and water and deep violet for the land areas.
