Not being familiar with pastels, not sure if there is too much white canvas showing around the perimeter of the things in the painting.

After completing Dennis's Paint a small stream lesson in watercolours and pastels I thought I would give a pastels painting a try.  We have a lot of Tui's in the garden and I really liked both Dennis's photos and the paintings so far  :clap:

Taking the opportunity to wish you all a Happy Next Year full of blessings.

I tried to get rid as much of the halo as I could on the Tui. Hope this'll make it.

Happy New year to you too Juan.  Nice drawing, but I wonder if you were to put a piece of paper over the bird and draw what looks like  a halo arround the head by not worrying about going over the bird since you would have a paper over it, that should get ride of the marks.
