I did this after having thrown the piece before that into the trash can. It is like when you have been thrown off a horse: go and get on it again as soon as possible! I seldom throw a piece away, but the one I am speaking off hurt my eyes whenever I looked at it, and gave me the feeling of utter incapability.
I had a photo reference from the RIL on WetCanvas uploaded by Crias for the hornbill, which helped. I put the pastel paper on a rather hard cardboard this time which seemed to keep the oil pastels from crumbling too much. And I cleaned the oil pastels after blending with them very carefully with a paper towel and did the same with the paper stumps.
You wouldn’t call a hornbill a pretty bird, but they have a lot of personality!
