Fun AND frustrating

 I've blurred, brushed, blended, drawn and redrawn my feline visitor from last spring.  This is a better likeness in many ways, but it still isn't "right."  I'm not (yet) sure (when it comes to pastels) when to start over rather than repair. 
 I also started another "inspired by Richard C. Harrington" landscape.  (The note card is at the upper left).
Mine is a bit on the garish side-- while simultaneously lacking sufficient contrast.  How can that be? 
Am I missing just the right tint?  Or am I missing the boat?
I read on another blog that it could also be  a poor match up between pastel brand/softness and the brand of paper.
Sheesh!  So much to learn.
