Pastel Pencils on an Ampersand Pastelbord. The artwork is mounted on a cream matt board to show off the thickness of the board and is framed in a white frame. TrueVue glass has been used to not only protect the artwork from moisture, dust and scratches, but to reduce the glare on the glass, allowing for a better view of the artwork.
The flamingo is a beautiful, elegant bird, that is able to stand gracefully on one leg. Their distinctive colour comes from their diet. The more abundant their food source is, the more vibrant the colour is on their plumage. The flamingo is a very social being and live in large colonies.
