Today's update on the chickadee painting

I have worked more of the birch bark on this step and slowly working my way to the right and downwards to prevent smudging the pastel. Accidental smudging is much more of an issue when working pastels on sandpaper as opposed to using suede or velour. But then, one can easily blend the pastel on the sandpaper; virtually impossible on the flock type surface of the velour and suede.


  1. The birch bark is coming along beautifully, Colette!! Excellent.

  2. I am glad you think so Hilda as I was getting a bit worried!
