My style of some realism - I can't quite get rid of all the impressionistic influences. 3 layers. appx 4000x4800 at 400 ppi. Oils.

Marvellous one! A sort of symbol of the carioca Carnival.

Love the up angle - makes it feel proud of its colors. . . like being proud of being an artist wearing its smock that's covered in paint. Nice image.

If nobody answers here, this being a thread that folks have already looked at, you may want to take it into general chat section and ask it there. I'd answer if I knew. Or, you can contact support.

I would look on this page first where they have the links to many things including 'Contact' where they can tell you if you're eligible for a discount or whatever.

Looking through all the threads with "birds" - this is a great find! I particularly like the feathers at the base of the neck and top of the wing, you captured some great detail and texture. So very jealous and inspired. I would have liked to see the background a bit more... hm, not sure - with more colour gradient and more oil feel to it? But nevertheless the macaw is splendid. I'd love to be able to paint parrots at that level one day.

Skylar, those feathers look so FLUFFY, what a great effect. Great contrasts overall. Really well done
