pastel for oil

My comfort level is working with pastel, not oil paint, so when I began to feel unsure of what to do next to the oil painting I'm working on, I set it aside and painted a small pastel of what the finished oil might look like. I call these little paintings color studies and most end up on my Daily Paintworks Gallery for purchase.

I keep color samples of the pastels I used and cross reference to my Richard Schmid color charts to mix the correct colors for the oil painting.
