Me and My Gal - Pastel, Animal

Bastrop chickens are protected and live on Farm Street.  This pair was hanging out with Bastrop Resident, the previous painting on this blog.  I really like the effect that pastel has on the feathers of the birds.  Pastel never shows up in the photos as nicely as in real life.

Me and My Gal, 5 x 7 inches, Pastel on Pastelbord
The painting is on board and taped directly to the glass so you can set it on an easel or pop it into a standard frame. In private collection in Bastrop, Texas.
