Another of the paintings I'm working on this summer is a group parakeet portait. The birds are blues and greens, so creating a natural background is a little tricky. I've opted to go with a sky in lavender, blue, grey and some yellow. It's full of movement and will for the most part be covered by the birds but I have hopes that it will make a nice backdrop.
The U.S. is rich in diversity and beauty. Happy 4th U.S.A.!!
