I like this a lot! Did you use Canson?

It's obviously some type of bird, but just what is a pukeko? http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Thanks Roan,
The pukeko is one of our native birds of NZ.
I used Art Spectrum Pastel primer on mat board (the primer is like fine sandpaper).

Thanks, Lulu!

I've used the primer and the Art Spectrum paper. Good stuff!

Bobbie and Animal, thanks very much for your comments, and for looking.
One of my sisters likes this so much I think it will be her birthday present!
