8.31.2010>>> Next I am going to paint some sun conures (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!


Humble beginnings but I'll make it work.  


I got a lot done today! Amazing how fast they go when they are small!!! 


Some work on the tail today.


I added some lighter colors to the bird's chest which I like.  I am still working on the tail though which I don't like yet.


I worked on the tail feathers more today.  


I have been trying to figure out what I needed to add to this painting to make it a bit more interesting.  I decided on adding some plants.  More to come...


More leaves today. And I added a branch as well.


I painted over the small leaves today.   


I lightened the leaves on the top right in the back.  I made them more yellowy and lime green.  I also added some reddish brown contrast to the painting.


I slightly lightened up the green in the leaves in the front top/right. I also started working on the tail again.  That tail is killing me here...


I added some finishing touches and finished!
