Been working more with the pastels, this time a sweet little Robin. Very vocal characters this time of year as they have paired up and are rearing young, and always a good subject to work on. I feel like I’ve made progress with the medium again, though it’s not where I want it to be still. But as this is still only a sketch, I’m not too worried about the finesse of certain things: I am however quite happy with the general depth to the feathers I’m getting, how the colours work together, how they layer, how the medium works and suchlike. Needless to say I’m enjoying my time with the pencils more and more as I work with them.
