Studio Work - Pastel

I got a new set of Terry Ludwig pastels this week and wanted to give them a test run tonight. I didn't have many reference photos at hand, so used one which was used for several other paintings. I wanted to work looser and with a brighter palette than the photo.

I intended on taking more process shots, but got side tracked with working on the painting. Below is the photo on the right, with a quick sketch on the left on PastelMat paper.

I love the combination of the deep plums with the greens.
