Parrot (Pastel on Sugar Paper)
Parrot in Pastel
I did this pastel picture during an adult education art class, at Missenden Abbey. Everyone liked it so thought I'd share it with you.
The pastel picture was created on sugar paper (a sheet from a scrapbook A4). It was taken from a photograph.
The most challenging part was the beak as I think the parrot had a deformed beak! I was pleased with how the plumage turned out and also the eye.
This was the first picture I did on the summer school session. I have other pictures from the lessons should you wish to see them.
I have been using soft pastels for about 3 years now and this was the first time I had gone to a class especially for pastels.
