Color Blocking (what's on the easel contd )

After blocking in and alcohol wash over Nupastel I began the application of pastel working back and forth between paintings . I'm not finished , here are two more progressions 

What's On The Easel ?

Recently a very talented pastelist suggested trying color block studies.  So choosing to do two color variation studies using the same reference , I  started with two quick color blockings on half sheets of white colorfix . I used a red - orange warm and blue cool under painting . I blocked in using a Nupastel and then used alcohol to fix the color. Though these are not finished I am having to much fun playing with color , try it , I feel I have learned a lot.
