Coloured pencils and Pan pastels on drafting film
This commission is for my neighbour to give to her daughter. Their dearly beloved budgie has not been well lately, and just in case anything should happen to him, they wanted a keepsake to remember him by.
A few months ago, I discovered Pan Pastels, and for anyone doing people portraits, these pastels are a wonderful way of helping to smooth the skin out as you are in the finishing stages of a portrait. They respond well to an application of fixative.
Wishing all our friends in the US a wonderful Thanksgiving with family, friends and loved ones.
