Hi everyone

This is my first contribution to WDE. I have MaryY and Rozzi to thank for encouraging me.:)

This pastel painting was done on a piece of plywood, primed with gesso and two coats of Black Colourfix. Size is 23cm x 18cm.

Regards

John

Yay another Aussie!! Welcome John and I hope you become a regular. I love your Noddys and the black colourfix makes a terrific background. Love the colours as well especially in the nest.
