Today I started working with the softer pastels - Rembrandts and Giraults. By the time I was finished working for the day I had worked over pretty much the entire painting, adding detail, emphasizing value contrasts and softening edges in the background and adding detail to the fawns. I'm happy with the overall composition with one exception. I want to remove the lower left brown areas and extend the grass there instead. That will give the fawns a more obvious path into the painting.
