On the Canal Path

Several sketches led up to this pastel, though it may not look like it.   I hope I am on the right path.  I am trying to move in a different direction.  Time will tell.

Loriann, Thanks. Actually seeing your preparatory sketches led me to try being more deliberate. I have another pastel made today, not yet posted, which has benefited from a b&w drawing and a color sketch beforehand. I like that word, beforehand, in terms of creating pastels. I will have to see what the OED says about its origin.
