This was done in Neoart water-soluble pastels.

I love your picture and am intrigued by your background. How did you you do that? And can you use fixative on water soluable pastels?

Hi and thank you -
labang I did the background in regular water color very wet and than cranked salt all over it. I am not sure about fixative.

dupliK - us mice are fast on the pastles. Actualy, I was going out to dinner so had the images a little before hand (thanks animal) I started this at 5 and it took me the full 2 hours to do it.

This bird is gorgeous, Miss Mouse. Love the softness - your background is a lovely addition to the painting. Well done.

I really like this! I love the freedom and wild tropical feel. It is really cool. I've seen people get some really wonderful effects with salt and this is no exception. I would like to know, do you simply let the salt disolve or is it somehow lifted off?

Love the colors on this cockatoo and his "Don King" coiffure. The salted background is very effective. Another nice tool for watercolor effects is Lawry's lemon pepper (has to be Lawry's). I've gotten some nice foliage effects out of that. Good work, MM!

Which beats the newest in French Delicasies . . . Crow! Ah well, if we didn't have the olympics, we would only have politics to poke fun at.

As per the pic . . . Outstanding! I have never seen watersoluable pastels. Are they like WC pencils in consistency? Or more like Nupastels? I like the salt patterned background and the expressive nature of the cockatoo.
