2 views of "Room With A View", 9x12 and 12 x16 pastel

These are both from a photo sent to me by a friend studying Italian in Italy.  So the reference photo is a tiny little thing.  I did the top one last night for a demo at Chemers Gallery.  I did my usual under painting using colors that are similar to what I saw the finished color to be.  I then applied pastel for a quick painting.  Today I decided to do it again using a much bolder under painting to use to control temperature and undertones.  I also changed the composition and zoomed in.  I had fun with all the color and am still figuring out how I feel about the outcome.
