While I continue to experiment and learn with my watercolors, I relax in between and play with pastels.
Oil pastels mixed with pencil, I like them best on paper, smooth paper. The pencil is not good on canvas.
Birds, with their roundish body but rather "graphical" legs, feet and beaks (and feathers), are a nice subject for this matter. Things are a little dark here, that's because I used the camera and not the scanner because of the smudgyness...
And oups, Blogger has pixies in it's polices right now....?
