The Parrot


Colorful birds are just so unusual. When we think of nature, we see green leaves, or brown grass, or blue skies and that remains dominant in our minds. In the animal kingdom, the more muted colors are obvious, think deer, cows, sheep, bears, elk, coyote etc. Most of them stay hidden and blend into the background. But somehow the avian world, just goes wild with color. Spectacular reds and yellows, greens, purples and every color in the rainbow just explode. I decided to explore different species and found this interesting parrot that I thought would look even better in a painting. I use acrylic on a canvas panel to make it really pop.

Acrylic on panel, unframed size: 11″ x 14″
