Boutineere on Piano keys in Pastel

I zoomed in and focused on the flower since it was for a Flower challenge.  I love how well the piano keys turned out.  So far this is my favorite painting (partly because of the piano).  It's on two Royal and Langnickel 5x7 pages taped together to create a 10x7 painting.

"I'm not impressed" paintings

Haven't posted in a while, but wanted to document my awful practice pastel paintings.  The first two were on sanded construction paper.  I have seen videos of pastelists painting on colored ground so I tried it out to see how I like it.  Not so sure I do.  Also, forgive the shadows of the tall grass - lawnmower won't cut and even if we could, ground is too wet anyway.
  This first painting isn't too bad, Moonlight

This last one is two Royal & Langnickel papers taped together.  Not bad, but still not great.
