Feeling tropical


It has been cool, drippy and grey in Florida lately.
We don't have much patience with grey weather.
We take our blue skies for granted.

So this week, I created a nice tropical background with water colors
on yupo paper.
Decided it needed a parrot so used acrylics on the background.
Happy PPF

  19. You have painted so a wonderful parrot with warm background, I love it. You tell that it has been cool and grey weather by you. I can agree with you on it, here it is grey, rainy too. I am waiting for the springtime with more light, and hopefully sunshine. Have a good time:)
