Bluebird Eggs in the Nest

'Tiny Jewels' 4x6 pastel
I was organizing my reference photos and came across a picture Jayne had taken of an abandoned bluebird nest. It was a rare opportunity to see these beautiful eggs and nest up close. I enjoyed painting this tiny nest. It is on black colourfix pastel paper using some Great Americans and Girault pastels. Back to organizing!
