Bird Nest Demo Painting SOLD

'Nesting' 11x14 pastel
In my Back to Basics pastel class we have been studying the still life. Since most of us in the class are primarily landscape painters it has been a stretch. Last week I decided we would bring the outside in and do still life paintings using objects found in nature. For the demo I painted from an abandoned nest I have. The focus for the class was to start the painting with big simple shapes and gradually add the details. I love to paint nests for some reason!

Great nest! Nests are so interesting. I'm with you, still lifes, or is it lives, are a challenge for me. I much prefer the landscape.
