 :oops:  Forgive me Dennis--I did this one in colored pencil because the baby was here today and I didn't want to cause an asthma attack but wanted to do this one. The background was done hastily and she helped me too. I'll re-do in pastels when I'm alone. Thank you for a wonderful lesson. You are such a gentle soul.

Great job girls!!!! They are all beautiful.


I'm waiting for the replay to do mine. I watched the live class which was great but as I had to leave for work straight after I decided to wait and do my painting on Saturday when I have more time.

Well this painting was fun to do.  However, I have problems with a mishmash background in pastels as I did with watercolor.

Jillh,

Your mishmash background looks good to me, as so does the cute little bird.

Carol love your colour pencil bee eater.
Jill the bird is lovely and I like the background .I agree with you it is very tempting to keep on blending the pastels!

Dennis I tried  :). Back grounds get me every time.  I don't have a clue what I'm doing.
