There are time when I paint something, when I know how I want the painting to look. Other times, I play with my subject and my medium. This is one of those play times. I did this elk in realistic colors and didn't like her that way, so I replaced some of the real colors with other colors.

I'm not finished yet, as I don't like some of the colors I used. I'll go over her again and fix those places.

She has been fun to work on. This is a pastel, about 10X12 perhaps on blue/grey matboard.
