    Your illustrations are beautiful.

    You have really captured the look of these birds.

    Excellent! I would try also some sort of different background which may furtherly enhance the subject.

    They are for a exposition and need to stand out much, with nothing to distract the viewer. I have a version with background, and really is better without it.
    Thank you very much for you comment. Nice to meet you!

    Actually I was thinking to something undefined creating a color/ tonal contrast, or, in the simplest form, just to an appropriate color behind (since I made the herebelow test), but I can see what You mean and the merits of Your choice to use an absolutely neutral and aseptic background for all the birds You'll show at Your exhibition.
    Looking forward to see a wondeful thread where You will hopefully collect all Your specimens!

    Speaking as someone that enjoys detail in paintings, your bird paintings are superb , I look forward to seeing many more in the future.
