#23 step1 pastel

I've received emails appreciating the step x steps I post on this journal so I'll try to do that with this painting. I'm working from the top down and using the little color study as my example -  applying pastel on top of the oil-wash foundation shown in my last post. Each time I introduce a new color into the painting, I apply it in several places. Example: The light blue of the distant hills is repeated in the background trees and in the brightest area of the water. I feel this adds continuity in a painting. It is very distracting to me to view art that has a spot of color in one place without being able to find that color in a least one other area.
