Who's a Pretty Boy then?

This is my first attempt at an acrylic painting, I chose a parrot because of the lovely texture to the feathers and the vibrant colours. It's done on canvas board, thanks for looking, Joanne:)

Excellent painting! You've really captured the textures of the feathers well. Not too convinced of the green eye though. Are they that green?

Artist Reply: Thank you very much Cathy. The eye on the photo I used as reference was quite bright, but maybe I emphasized it a bit, lol! :)

Whow, he is beautiful! Your very good a painting birds esp if it is the first time!

Artist Reply: Thank you so much for your lovely comment. I thought this would be quite easy for my first attempt, I think attempting a human portrait would have been too hard:)

It's hard to believe that this is your first attempt with acryilcs! The eye is electric, great job. One thing, try not to use black. A mixture of burnt sienna and colbalt blue makes a more interesting dark shade.

Artist Reply: Thank you Dan, I will give that a try. Any advice on painting is always greatly appreciated, take care, Joanne:)
