I did this because I wanted to try a new technique for rendering underpainting's with pastel! It's done on Strathmore 140lb. C.p. watercolor paper. 12"x15"

Very nice Jay, you may want to lighten the black lines of the road as you go into the distance. :clap:

Well I blocked in my colors then with a soft flat brush I dipped in baby oil or some other light oil and then I sprayed with a workable fixatif. Then proceeded as normal. I followed a you tube video to learn some new techniques on underpainting I think it worked out well.
