A bit more bird painting work...
I have been doing more feather work on this painting tonight. I'm loving how the pink bird is starting to take a more 3 dimensional shape with the feathers looking rather ruffled. I'm thinking of darkening the tail feathers still a bit more to give the impression that the light is coming from above but I'll wait till the painting is more advanced to make a decision.
Next I should really draw his legs...one of them is tucked underneath the body with only the toes showing but I'm wondering if that will interfere with the other bird's head, being that it is in that same small area. Need to think about that too before continuing.
