Quick pastel study

original pastel, 6x6" unframed

One of the things I struggle with in my artwork is looseness.

The beginning of a piece is marked with such an exuberant energy - akin to Anne of Green Gables looking out at the new day with no mistakes in it...yet. Then the marks start. And those marks continue and overlap and blend and continue and continue.

This piece was made quickly and with an intention to loosen up.

Now I'm not sure what to do with it - do I refine the front? Does it read correctly?
Excitedly I'm happy with my story in greens. I'm a landscape painter so that's a good thing!

Thanks for reading! ~kmw
