Sorry pastel forum this was meant to be in oil painting.

Oh nice! I love the clusters of red flowers and buds, reminds me of a big overgrown red geranium or something. Gorgeous colors. Beautful little bird contrasting by saturation and values. Love the composition and color harmony, great trick having a saturated background and neutral-muted focal object! That gold and golden-brown ties the red-orange and green together perfectly!

Lovely! :)
When I first looked at the painting I thought wow, it looks like an oil, I want to know how to create this look in pastel :D

I like the legs and feet and also the variety of colors of the twig.
A really nice painting.

Sorry guys for wrongly posting this in pastels when it should have gone to oils. I do work with pastels as well and there are quite a few of my works in here from years gone by. I'm so embarrassed :eek: :o
