Yea Marsha!!

Just snuck in this one today. I drew it out on Monday and sprayed the drawing then added the underpainting to the bg with hard pastels (nupastels) today. I then sprayed this with SpektraFix spray. then completed the painting with pastel pencils on the birds and various soft pastels for the Bg.

Jen love your Lorikeets, they have such bright vibrant colours. I had an idea on how to do these but ran out of time to try. I may try yet though.

Thank you Jen for all your work in posting February's challenge, I enjoyed working on the photos and the theme, great fun.

Bonnie   C & C most welcome / appreciated

Jen, the Lorikeets look really nice and colorful.  The background is so nice.  I like the abstract effect.  Great job.

Catherine - I hope you keep your brushes wet! You've done some really nice work and hope to see more.

Jen - Great job with the photos...I still want to do your folks, but will see what time allows for.

Nice feathery texture on your birds, Jen. Glad they landed just in time to view. ;)

My try at the lorikeets. I wanted to try a water medium on the sueded paper. I did a base painting of the birds with acrylic ink, except for the purple (I only have primary colours and the purple mix turned out as burgandy) which is watercolour. Pastels are applied to finish. The water medium went on ok, you have to watch that it is covering because of the rough texture of the papr, it doesn't soak as with watercolour paper and does take some time to dry. I kind of lost control of the shapes as I sketched in pastel, also must start printing out photo instead of using laptop. After taking photo realize the background looks more like rain than foliage.
