WDE 8. Mar 2013 Pigeon

Oty, thanks for hosting and for the inspiring Romanian photos

I did finish this during the weekend but my wife did not allow me to post it before I fix the drawing of pigeon's head

It is 12x12" (30x30 cm) soft pastel on gray Ingers paper.

C&C welcome.

Very nice. I don't care what anyone says. Pigeons are beautiful birds.

Re: WDE 8. Mar 2013 Pigeon

I like the quizzical expression and the the stronger contrasts in the tail feathers. I also like how you built up your layers/colours/ strokes to give depth and a sense of energy to the background and table. Whatever you fixed on the head worked! Good job.
