No Laughing Matter




“No Laughing Matter” SOLD
Pastel on Mi Teintes paper
37cm x 29cm

My family and I were exploring Lorne on a beautiful sunny day.  We were being closely watched by a Kookaburra who sat high on the edge of a roof.  It has been well over a year since I painted on anything without a sanded surface, so I was looking forward to experimenting with the texture of his feathers and making the back ground soft and suggestive.   I used a Canson paper and kept my pastel layers thin.  I enjoyed getting the pastel pencils out too.
