Very good start Paula. An alcohol wash is my favorite way to start a pastel painting as well. Have you considered playing more with the color of the underpainting, such as using complimentaries? So far I haven't been brave enough to stray too far from local color.

Hi David, Thank you!! I've done underpaintings with complementary colors, but would rather just use local colors or tone the board just one color (usually a medium value of violet).
