Macaw Card Finished

Card Finished. To make the dark background and the black on the bird I used a combination on windsor red ,hookers green and ultramarine blue.Hookers green and lemon yellow make the lime green on top of his head.

Macaw Card Step 1

This is a watercolor painting I have started on a greeting card. It is of a multicolored Macaw that I took a photo of during my recent visit to San Jaun, Puerto Rico. We visited "The Gallery Inn" which is a great place to visit and stay if you are able to stay there. I was on a cruise passing through but had to visit. The Owners are artists and even make their own pottery. The sculptures are wonderful and there is Art and beautiful birds free in the Inn and court yard. This guy was very friendly and posed well.
