Underpainting with Alcohol wash

I have been wanting to try a larger meadow painting and today was the day! I decided to do a wild underpainting since the meadow was going to be so subtle and green. I used an Ampersand Pastelbord 16x20. I put down a layer of Nupastels using pinks, reds and oranges and washed it with rubbing alcohol. I didn't worry about drips. I didn't get any more work in progress shots but I wanted to share the underpainting.
