Bird's Nest: A Pastels Tutorial - Hodgepodge

Oh wow. Gorgeous. That's what we all said when Nana came in with her latest chalk pastel of a bird's nest. Beautiful! We wanted to make one too. So Nana taught us how to weave the colors just like birds do - making layers. Ready your pale yellow, yellow, black, dark brown, orange and dark pink.
