Alley, a crop of a pastel

This is a crop of a painting I did of my niece's friend. I took the liberty using lots of different textures for her scarves and her jacket. I like the way the soft green and teal scarf contrast with the metal and zipper on her jacket. Just my take but I think it works.
I used Wallis museum sanded paper and did a full turpentine wash to get the soft gradiated background. That orange is an intense color but was a blast to work with - especially against Alley's soft skin tones and green, green eyes!
