Amate Paper Paintings

This was my first project with chalk pastels! Amate paper paintings are traditionally painted on paper made from bark. Many of the paintings have birds on them, so went with that theme.  This project took place before I knew hand wipes would be very beneficial for keeping the artwork clean, but the birds still came out nice and colorful!
