Pastel Landscape

This week we are asked to produce a landscape in pastel. You may remember an earlier version of this piece in oils. At that time, I'd planned to reuse the composition for a pastel piece using my homemade material. I didn't have a bright enough yellow and so simply rubbed in a layer of dry lemon ochre pigment. Worked great!

I tried this same piece last night but got caught up in too much rubbing. Everything had this bland wash look. For today's work I mixed it up with softly rubbed in as well as untouched placement of pastels.
