My next commission, a parrot called Bertie. He's a character, generally up to no good! He's learnt to say 'wine o'clock' so I approve of him!
I'm back painting in oils after a long break. I'm using a 16x12 deep profile canvas.
I'm interested in all the colours in the greys, he's a grey parrot, perched on a metal colander. There's also lots of different textures to consider, Bertie's soft feathers, compared to the hard shiney metal.
