Pastel Sketches





These two chickens were my focus today.  They are small - done on brown canson paper.
I needed a little practice, as I haven't done any pastels in awhile.  On to bigger and better things.

Pattie, these two are gorgeous, so soft yet full of life. Love the colours. That's a pretty cool easel ya got there, I'm envious.

Thanks for comments Mark, Liz, Vern and Judy. Remember, chickens DO talk back.

Wow! You've been busy. Wonderful graphic, eye popping quality to these, Pattie! Hey, on a side note my sister is absolutely thrilled with the portrait. I will finally get to see it day after tomorrow and I can't wait! Keep up the good work.

Gotta love those chickens! You captured the expressions perfectly. That sharp eye and the ever clucking beak...excellent!

Diane - I am happy Deb likes it. Ellen and Gwen - you gotta thank those chickens, they are good entertainment around here.
