At some point, it will make sense as to why I am doing these studies. At least I hope so. Maybe it will become a dead end. This one was done differently than the previous two, starting with pastel, adding washes, and then finally pastel again. Degas used water with pastels, but I am not sure if anyone knows exactly how he did so. Also with the tree limbs on the ground, the negative and positive spaces interact in interesting ways. That might be another way of saying that they can get confusing.
