I tried to work larger this weekend. Something's not working. As I try to "simplify" and work with fewer elements, the painting seems to loose energy. Maybe it's the pastel colors?

This is a "paint over". I covered over a whole lot of busy areas with these "swatches of color". Perhaps I should treat these "swatches as background"... But that gets away from my assignment to paint with fewer elements.
