Here's looking at you

Last one from my parrots mini series, hope you like him. Painted with 2 blues and 2 yellows (a warm and cool version of each: pthalo/cerulean and lemon/Indian yellow) + B&W and a 3/8 inch flat brush - used on its side for the fiddly bits. The key to success with birds I have found is not to fiddle: put down a feather (dab of paint) and leave it alone. 
Probably I could apply this to everything I paint, as it is always when I fiddle that things fall apart.
