I loved the vivid blues of the reference photo so I tried to reproduce something like it in watercolour and a little airbrushing. Feathers are hard.:eek:

That eye looks like it was painted by Jan Van Eyck! Very cool. Feathers are hard with an airbrush for sure. But you'll find the technique that works for you. Well done!

Thanks - yes I'm still trying to find my way around watercolours.

I have two parrots now however I wish I had a pair of Hyacinth Macaws, alas they cost about $15,000.

That is expensive but I guess they live a long time so you get your money's worth. :)
