The Ceylon Magpie

I'm afraid you'll have to put up with another bird.! I missed the AVA session yesterday as I'm still suffering from a cold and accompanying cough, although this seems at last to be moderating. This is the latest subject for the Facebook community `Paint Colorful Birds For Fun'. 

The Ceylon Magpie - Approx. 16" x 12" Waterford 140lb (300gsm) rough

I initially made a pencil drawing, Pentel mechanical pencil 07 2B.  Painted this the following day about 40 minutes. Colours were Translucent Brown (Schminke PBr41), Quinacridone Coral (DS PR209), Blues Phalo Blue, Ultramarine and Cerulean. Possibly some Turquoise (Lukas PB16) and a little Ivory Black (Maimeri). The greens are Viridian (PG17), Phalo Green (PG7), Sap Green and Green-Gold (Rowney PY129) also some Raw Umber on the branches.

Only three brushes. The Isabey retractables sizes 4 & 6 and the Isabey Kolinsky sable Size 6.
