Illustration Friday - wings

I almost never work in pastel, but I have been admiring the work of children's illustrator Lynne Chapman and enjoying some of the videos she has on her website, so I bought a couple of sheets of sanded paper and used this weeks IF prompt as a starting point. You can certainly get some lovely bright colors with pastels, but I'm not a fan of the dusty messiness.


  1. This is really nice. I love the soft texture that only pastels bring, and I'm impressed how clean you have kept your colors. I can't tell that it was messy from here!

  2. I love this bright and cheerful piece! I feel inspired to try pastels by this!

  3. Great composition and colors! This is beautiful :)
