An Underpainting and a Little Adjustment

Add caption

This is a little 9x9" pastel on UArt paper that I started and finished yesterday. I don't always use an underpainting with my pastels but I decided to do one for this piece. I started with a loose watercolor underpainting and then when that dried I added a layer of clear gesso just for a little more texture in the flowers and grasses. This also started out as a 9x12" but just didn't look quite right so I cropped it square and it felt much better.
