Bird Nest Original Pastel by Karen Margulis

'Nesting' 5x7 pastel ©Karen Margulis SOLD
I have been experimenting with my underpaintings this week. I am calling them manipulated underpaintings because instead of just waiting for an underpainting to dry, I am trying new ways to move the color around. After my class tomorrow I will post some examples. For this nest painting I used thinned oil paint and actually painted the twigs with the paint. I did cover most of it up with pastel which happens sometimes but the underpainting did help me with the pastel stage.
