8.31.2010>>> Next I am going to paint some birds that I saw @ Jungle Gardens in Sarasota, Florida. 

*** I am going to be making a bunch of smaller paintings for a while to prepare for the 
Woodlands Waterway Art Festival that I am going to have a booth @ in April 2011!


I started another painting today while waiting for the sun conure painting to dry.  This one is of a parrot itching itself.  I love the curve of his body with the circle canvas.


I added his beak and face!


More work on the feathers.

9.13.2010 Happy Eddie!

I made the blue part a little wider and I added some more shadows in the green feathers.  I also added some yellow to the head's green feathers as well as some contrast (dark shadows near the beak.)


I started adding the background today!  


More work on the head and the orangey yellow feathers today. I am getting a little frustrated with it but I think that I am close to finishing!  


I worked on the contrast in the feathers today. I'm attempting to add more details...


I added some finishing touches and finished!
