Here again is an older drawing of mine, and an experiment in computer drawing programs. The wonderful thing about using the computer, especially in these economically challenged times, is that you can experiment with all kinds of 'media' and you aren't wasting precious paint and canvas on trial and error. This is a 'pastel' piece, and I was trying to find a more colorful way to work. I was excited by the purple shadows on the rust colored feathers, and will definitely be using that combination in a painting later. Also, I find that I enjoy the more abstract backgrounds. I find doing too much detail stressful and my hubby concluded that it is stressful to look at as well when I am not having fun with it. Smart hubby!!!
