Cockatoo in Pastel

Painted for my nephew who owns one of these amazing birds. Various pastel pencils, pans and sticks on pastelmat paper (my favorite pastel surface). (tutorial by Kirsty Rebecca)


Wow! That is beautiful. Good job!

I love this. The texture of the feathers and beak are amazing.

The detail of the feathers is stunning :star_struck: Awesome work!

Excellent ! I love the position of the bird. It makes for an interesting composition.

Thanks so much! Yes the image with him fluffing his feathers was what drew me in. That and the color contrasts
