Pastel on sanded paper

These hardy wildflowers grow in a meadow near where I live, not this time of year, of course. I photographed this image late in the summer a couple of years ago and I've painted it in watercolor, acrylic and now a quick pastel study.  

I'm learning what my innate marks are when I put pastel to paper. This revelation is so interesting to me, more so in pastel than any other medium, I think.  At least this is where I'm seeing my marks most clearly.
