End of Day - Finished Painting

I finished my first soft pastel painting! I have doodled a little with soft pastels, but this is my first completed painting. It was difficult to scan and the darks didn't quite show their true colors, but you get the idea.
I named this painting "End of Day" because I took this picture just before sunset at a park near my house.
After completing this painting and having so much fun doing it, I think I'm really on to something! I actually bought a complete set of Mount Vision soft pastels today! I can't wait to get them. I have a few smaller sets, but I've been wanting a complete set.
Hopefully I will posting many more paintings that I'll be doing with my new pastels!
