Jungle Parrot

I started this piece with the drawing at the lower right.  I enhanced it by adding the pale green”foliage” that rises up behind my parrot.  I painted in the background in a majenta as I am trying not to use so much blue!  It gave me the feel of a jungle so I decided to add a parrot.  I traced the parrot from a postcard and painted it in watercolor.  My favorite part is actually the bottom of the parrots tail, painted in yellow, with my drawing showing through.
