Wood Nymphs 18" x 24" pastel painting

My second pastel painting. Two young friends (or wood nymphs, godesses, lol) showed up in the backyard, it was midday and very hot, dressed in old sheets and with peacock feathers in their hair! I painted this on location and also using photos as wood nymphs don' t want to pose for long! The butterfly was there and has probably laid eggs in my cabbage in the veg.garden! 

I made a lot of mistakes, but learnd a lot too.
