I've spent a couple of frustrating weeks working with pastels...nothing to show for it at all. Took a photo of this gander this morning at Wheeler Farm. He was standing on one leg when a little girl ran toward him. He stretched his head up and was about to give her a warning honk. I loved his long neck and his almost ballet-like stance. Pastel on white velour paper. May have gotten a bit carried away with the background...I may try this on another surface later.
