Pile Up 1 & 2 , 12x9 pastel

Decided to work on two at the same time today with different under paintings.  I found during the process it mattered a lot what color I was working over.  In the end there is not a strong difference.  My thought is the under painting leads me and I respond it it.  Some lead better than others.  It isn't so much that the paint shows through as much as it simplifies my process..  It can make it easier or give me a fight.  What it does best is it gives me a course and thought process to follow.
