Royal Tern Shorebird Pastel Painting by Poucher

"What's Up?"
Soft pastel on UArt 400 paper 8x8"

Royal Terns are common on Gulfport beach this time of the year. This one was pretty friendly!
I used watercolor pencils for the beak and eyes to get the detail. If I can get more shorebirds to pose so nicely, I think I'll do a series of close-ups.

Egret Fishing Florida Gulf Coast Pastel Painting by Poucher

"Favorite Fishing Spot"
Soft Pastel on UArt paper 8x8"

Camping at Fort Desoto park, this Egret likes the sea wall at our campsite for early morning breakfast. Sometimes, he is joined by the Ibis and Herons. So many beautiful birds on the Gulf Coast!

This was my first time using UArt paper. My supply of Wallis paper has finally run out. I'm happy to say that I loved it. It's very similar to Wallis.
