This is a 12X16 inch painting of Pastel on a half inch canvas.
It started out as a watercolor but I decided to use that as the underpainting. Over that I used Golden Acrylic ground to give texture and be able to add pastel. My inspiration was a photo I took of baby green cheeked conures that the lady I got my baby white faced cocktails was raising. I loved their different expressions and could feel their personalities shine through. It is amazing how different likes to birds’ personalities can be. I have five birds now of my own and they are very different. My youngest Cocktail acts a lot like my quaker parrots as he likes to hang out in their aviary with them other than his parents.
