Out for an Easter Stroll by SandieBlair Out for an Easter Stroll by SandieBlair
This is my first try at pastel pencils.
I think that I will really enjoy them once I get the hang of them. :0) I had a hard time getting a good picture of it, but this is the best one.
I made this for an OSWOA exchange. It will soon be on its way to Germany from the US. Now that's a long stroll! :)


Thank you to Queenselphie for the great stock reference photo.

This is gorgeous. I like how the background is made from vibrant strokes, which in turn makes the chick seem jump out with joy. :love:

I got a tablet for Christmas, and I haven't had much time to try it out. Hopefully this summer I won't be so busy.
I can't wait to see what you do with the tablet!

Yes, Queenselphies's gallery is great. :nod: I'm glad that you got a chance to check it out. :)

Thanks David! :dalove:
It was very a very fun picture. It looks so soft and fluffy in person. And the grass is a bit brighter and it looks like Easter grass. :)
I hope you are having a great weekend! :heart:
