Bring me sunshine

After yesterday's post about colour intensity, I painted this one to see just how far I could push it.  I thought a luminous yellow would be a welcome sight for those of us in the very rainy UK.
Since these amazing birds live in the rain forest it occurs to me, rather whimsically, that perhaps this is why they are so colourful: to cheer themselves up. 
Just three tube colours in this one: Pthalo Blue, Cadmium Yellow Lemon and Burnt Sienna (+ B&W).
