Cowboy2 in pastel this time
I did this good old Cowboy when I was getting happy with palette knife in March.
Put down the oils for a while and tried the new stuff.

It was only 2 hours so it is as good as it is going to get for now, but I am both happy and a little stuck with this new stuff.
I am doing pretty nifty stuff all with hard pastels, which makes me thrilled to be so portable. I bought a watercolor block so I am neater and cleaner. And I find I can actually use fixative on it and it holds really well.
BUT and I am sure when I get into it with a wider range of chalks, it will be less limited but I feel TOOO colorful.
I like using color and when I get tired of pastel, I am sure my oils will JUMP from the experience, but I seem stuck in the complements.
I underpainted green to red and like I said, maybe it was just the time thing, but with a loose style does it read or just look like Christmas???
