The pastel painting that I did of Frank the dog arrived in Canada with no mishaps. I took about a week and a half from the day I mailed it here to the day he was notified that it had arrived there. That is not too bad. I did send it registered mail though and I watched its progress on the post office site.
I have been working on a picture, again in soft chalk pastels of a hummingbird and flower.
This is the web photo that I have been using as a reference.
And here is the finished project. Well, finished that is until I take it to class tomorrow and show my teacher. Unlike all the other people I have shown it to, he will see all the errors that I have made. I have lots of questions to ask him about shading to get the right depth that I am missing. It should be interesting to try and fix the mistakes that I have made.
I have several other projects at home that I want to get started on and also have several things that I want to blog about the neighbourhood, so perhaps will be on more frequently in the next few days. We will see what happens.
