Scribbly Brown Field

10 x 14 acrylic with pastel on paper. This is another "scribbly" landscape. I did this one with soft pastel instead of oil pastels. I ran out of oil pastels and thought, what the heck, I'll try doing one with soft pastels. I am pleased with how it came out. The oil pastels give more of a crayon quality and the soft ones are more of a sketchy feel. It really comes down to that - two techniques with slightly different results. Tell me what you think.
