The board I used had enough "tooth" to grab the pastel pigment easily. I chose to create a simplified tree-scape.

P.Guhin, tutorial
Rembrandt brand pastels are the best!
I used harmonious colors to draw in the shapes formed by the negative space (the background). Then I began to fill in the shapes.

Note in the finished work, below, that the brightest colors are balanced out with more neutral ones. Also notice that there is a sense of equilibrium.
TIP: Use a variety of values from dark to light!
