Pastel Partridge and Pear Blossoms in Progress


I am using the paper as part of my value scale in areas of this piece.
I adore the little white pear blossoms in the upper corner,
so much that I will continue to add more. As I share more of this piece
in subsequent posts you will see the leaves and branches added in and taken out
as I adjust the composition. The paper is taped to a drawing board,
with the work upright on an easel. I wear gloves when working with pastels.

I love the muted colors and although I know its in progress, I like how the bird is shaped like a pear. I look forward to seeing how it progresses.
