Cobalt Blues Two

8x10 watercolor with pastel on paper. This is a loosely done piece. I did not smudge the pastels, but let them sit on top of the paper. I like to use them in this sketchy style for a more contemporary look. Of course, smudged pastels create a wonderful moody look. They are more versatile than we realize.
