A tribute to a tiny feathered friend, found on a walk through our garden. Beautiful even when still.
I tried some new mediums in this artwork – charcoal pencils and Pan Pastels – and fell instantly in love. The Pan Pastels meant I could add broader areas of colour, like I was painting with a brush, while the charcoal pencils allowed me to get obsessive over tiny details.
