10 x 30 Parakeet & Cocktail Umbrella Oil Painting

30" x 10" Oil on Canvas
"Keets and Cocktails"

This painting is of 10 white baby parakeets standing in front of a wall of cocktail umbrellas. I painted it so that the birds on both sides are in shadow so only the center birds and umbrellas are highly lit. One bird is showing off for his friends. The size of the painting makes the birds slightly larger than life. This one took a while to complete. I didn't have any umbrellas or white parakeets that would sit still long enough, so most of this is imaginary.
