A Pastel of a Moose

Here are a couple of the first steps, but I forgot
to take more as I progressed.
I was really into this painting today.

This is the Quinacradone Azo Gold surface with some added primed areas.

Adding more tinted pumice gel, this one is Mars Black.

This moose was in the Colorado high country where we were camping a few years ago.
I loved the photo and wanted to add some MORE light.  I actually like this second step the best (even better than the finished piece - I think it's the simplicity and that it says everything I wanted the finished piece to say.)
