Olive Greenscape Two

This is a 5x7 watercolor with pastel and charcoal on paper. This suggests a suburban scene with a house on a hillside? Tell me what you think. I love doing these pieces in a sketchy style. I do them very fast, so I don't lose the freshness and looseness. Does that make sense? The pastel is left on top of the paper with very little if any smudging.
