Green Parrot, pet portrait

"Green Parrot"
©Fawn McNeill 2008

I drew this guy freehand, then did an under painting in black and white. This was a study in complimentary colors.  Corrected quite a few errors as I painted the under painting. Then I went in with green and red glazes (added Liquitex semi-gloss medium and varnish to make a transparent glaze) after the under painting was dry. It made him glow.  Adding the red tuft on his head was fun too.

About this painting:
8 x 10 inches
