Sometimes we discover things in acts of desperation! Well, not to be overly dramatic, but I didn't want to loose this painting. I had scraped into the surface of this board and it looked awful. I took some white pastel stick and smudged it and wet it and moved it around to hide the gauges that I had created. All this in an effort to lighten up the area under the onion. Anyone else use pastel on their watercolors?
