Unwanted Blue

What do you do when you want to remove phthalo blue from your palette? Use it up. Here the entire underpainting was phthalo blue. Not my best effort. Bad drawing but interesting effect with the blue.

You can see where I lowered the eyes and nose during the painting process. The phthalo blue underpainting however wouldn’t yield to my desires and refused to move. I don’t draw with pencil first for the same reason.
