Shopping Mall Cityscape Two, abstract oil pastel painting by Carol Engles

10 x 14 oil pastel on paper.  I am not sure what I had in mind other than a neutral theme. I am asked how I plan out my paintings and I honestly have to say that sometimes I don't have a plan. And these "planless paintings" are very liberating because of that.

I always enjoy your colors VERY much, but also LOVE this piece with the neutral palette. Keep painting!!

Thanks Elizabeth! Neutral colors can be interesting when you add a bit of color, line or shape I think. Should I do more with this palette?
