What Color is that Shadow?

Morning Bell
9" x 12"
Started on location and finished in studio.  Pastels on Pastel Card.  White buildings are a challenge!  What color are those shadows?  Think I threw every color in the box at this one.  Sometimes, it's a struggle.  Kept thinking warm or cool?  Darker or lighter?  Squinted a lot.  Had to remind myself that I'm not making a photo.  It's an interpretation.  Going to go look at  my Wolf Kahn book again and absorb his simplicity and stunning palette.
