Hola Geninne:

¡Felicidades por el premio!

Y me gusta mucho cómo te ha quedado el pájaro que has pintado con los pasteles. Le da un aspecto muy etéreo esa técnica.

¡Que te vaya bonito!

Helena,

Lovely. I love the colors which you have used. Recently I saw the Brent Bailer Gallery, with the Color correctness in all his drawings. I loved it.
