Beautiful OrioleApril 18, 2020
Orioles have beautiful colors in the northern and southern hemispheres. This oriole has a beautiful orange crown with yellow and black striping on the back. To see an orange bird in nature is a joy.
This work of art is created with oil based color pencils. I used Faber Castell polychromous pencils to complete this beauty. I added a touch of orange and yellow from Prismacolor since those two colors seem brighter than the polychromous pencils. The background is an abstract print with pan pastels added for the additional color. The art is currently unframed. To preserve the colors, the art will need to be framed with a UV protectant glass.
