Eastern Rosella painting

Hi everyone, just finished this painting, Eastern Rosella, oil on canvas, 20" x 24". This is my first serious attempt at painting a bird (normally I use coloured pencils). Would love some feedback :)

Your coloured pencil work is fantastic and It looks like you oils will match it

Thumbs up

Hi

Nicely captured ....

Very realistic with the 'hump' on the back - I even saw one fledged late last year that had an even more pronounced 'hump'. Very unusual.


Chosun

P.S. saw some of your drawings last year, and thought that the Musk Lorrikeet was just lovely
