Coloured Pencil on Colorfix Paper

Do you ever feel the need to cleanse your visual palette? Once I have finished a significant piece, I like to do something that will shake loose the former image and its colours and concerns. I picture it as the mental equivalent of my dog shaking the rain from his fur. (How do they manage to wiggle themselves so vigorously from their nose to the tip of their tail?)
So I did some visual cleansing by working on this small study. And the mental shake felt very good indeed! The chard pencils have been put away, my studio has been tidied and my drafting table has had a good wash. I am now ready to start a new piece next week.
So what do you do to cleanse your palette?
