Hi all! It’s the day after election day, 2020, and I am looking to spend some much needed time seeking creative solace in my studio.
After doing some reorganizing and clean-up, I decided to post about a soft pastel painting and color study I finished up a while back with baby chicks as the subject.
We raise chicks almost every year on our little hobby farm, and this year I took hundreds of photos so I would be ready with inspiration when I had time to paint.
(You might be surprised just how many photos one has to take before getting a “good” one! Those chicks are always on the go!)
When the time came I painted this color study in watercolor….
And here are some of the progress photos….
Once I finished, I knew that I wanted to do these little chicks in soft pastel too!
So I did….
And here is a closer view of the pastel painting in better lighting to make the colors true.
I hope you enjoy these little chicks as much as I enjoyed painting them!
Till next time—
I hope you are well and finding ways to stay creative!
