It's been a productive art weekend. I did one more flower painting before cleaning up to get ready for work Monday morning.
This one was a bit tough - the coleus and begonias weren't working, so I made some scribbles and that helped!

I wanted to try my hand at dappled shadows. Shadows are HARD to paint!! I worked in pastel today on a sheet of Wallis Museum paper. I did a quick layout with hard pastels:

"Extreme Limited Palette for Pastels". My set, close to Michael's, is on the left below. I still wanted a few more hard pastels, so selected the others on the right side. I also added a black, grey, and white pastel pencil.
