I really enjoyed getting back to the extra soft pastels, so have decided to stick with them at present. This is a soft pastel painting on A3 pastelmat paper.
I stumbled across these cute goslings back in the Spring up at Richmond park. It was getting late in the day, and they were settling down for the night, snuggling up to their Mum under a tree. The soft pastels I hope will be perfect to create the soft downy feathers of the goslings. I've used a couple of photos to get this composition together, and have spent an hour today roughly blocking in some colour.
