dominant color, temperature and pastel pencils?
This is another pastel that when it left the location was not working. Back in the studio with no interference from "the scene" it was easy to see its speckled nature. The first thing I did was unify it with the color of the light. Keeping in mind what would be cool and what would be warm I simply listened to the painting. Long ago someone gave me some pastel pencils, something I have never used. I took them out for this and found them to be helpful. I used them as I would a brush moving and joining colors.
