Christel, your bear is really great. As usual, the texture of the fur and your choice of palette is spot on. Well done!

Re: Chat and challenge for the oil pastels 2018

Thank you for the lovely references and I am enjoying the paintings very much.
I have never seen a bluebird and just HAD to paint him! I've added some leaves as I felt very sorry for him on the barbed wire. Confession: I drew him on white paper which was totally wrong so cut him out and pasted him on thin blue paper. It's A4 in size and all oil pastels of course!

Re: Chat and challenge for the oil pastels 2018

Very nice work, Margaretta! I like your chosen palette, and you did a good job with the details. The beak, the eye, and nice thin lines along the wing and tail feathers make this very pretty to look at. I love your pretty little branch!

I had not thought to cut out a subject and post on delicate paper like this - great idea.

Beautiful version of the bluebird, Margaretta. That is a new one for me - cutting out and pasting, cool!

Beautiful work Margaretta. I'm enjoying the texture and warm underbelly contrasts with the blues.

Re: Chat and challenge for the oil pastels Jan 2018

Hi Christel and all of you, it's been a long time since I last visited WC (and since I last painted or drew something). I'm looking forward to having time for art again.
I saw the awesome first reference you posted and thought "I already painted it a some years ago", so I decided to post it with the only pourpose of getting in touch with you all.
