Hey Ya'll. Sorry, it's been so long

This is a painting I just started on. This is in the stage of round 2 of probably 4 rounds. I think I'm through with the under-painting and am trying to deepen more darks and fit the right colors. I'm still not too used to soft pastels, especially on Strathmore paper. It's very textured which makes using the pastels kinda difficult, if you don't blend, you hardly get any color, just the white of the paper. But, it's good practice for me. I got lots of the cools down, now I'll be working on the warm highlights. I will hopefully put up more soon.
