And the next layer...

One of the valuable lessons I have learned so far about this nit-picky medium is to choose a direction, warm or cool, and continue aiming in that direction. So my underpainting tells me that it will be a warm background with a cool foreground. Messing warm over cool, or vice versa, makes mud. Yuck. Trying to keep the hues prismatic, as can be done with pastels, and as I want to portray. Otherwise, I'd be painting this. Silly me. Each layer brings everything into the light. I love that. This is keeping me from obsessing about Boo, who just follows me from room to room, happy little guy that he is. How sweet it is.
