I was not satisfied about the photo I had taken of my little sparrow. So this time I used my scanner. The outcome is a bit better I think. Right now I am working at a pastel painting of two little ducks. I use pastel pencils. Previously I only had not much colors and I decided to give myself a present and I ordered at Amazon.co.uk for less than half the prize a wooden box of 90 pastelpencils of Derwent. They are not too soft and that is what I like.
