This is the latest subject on Facebook `Painting Colorful Birds for Fun'. This is a complicated subject, especially if the bird is displaying, and I decided to adopt a minimalist approach with the head and neck the main focus, the remainder secondary with just an impression. Some others have attempted the full subject but it is too complicated for me.
15" x 11" Not Possibly Artistico 90lb.
The colours on the neck and head are mainly Turquoise (Lukas PB16) and various other blues. Sap Green features as does Raw Umber and Ivory Black. Just a touch of Quinacridone Rose (PV19).
