Mr Macaw-Parrot

Close ups

Oil on 6X6 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Joel was the great host who supplied a lot of great reference photos!

The colorful macaw called out to be painted! And he's quite a talker!

In some spots I lay the paint on thick with a palette knife then manipulated with a brush.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking!

In case I don't have time for a timely post, Happy Father's Day!!!!

1 Corinthians 13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.


  1. Really, really, good. How did you managed the delicate lines around the eyes?

    Charity - for sure! My mother raised us on this and she led by example.

    Happy fathers Day, Dean.

  2. A gorgeous gray-eyed Macaw, Dean. Excellent work!

  3. Happy Father's Day, Dean...this is a fabulous macaw DO you get so much information on a 6x6!? Love it!

  4. Hi there Dean! You have captured the head-cocking stare that these colourful characters all seem to possess!

    Often... their language can be as "colourful" as their plumage! HA HA!!

    A great painting!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,

  5. Beautiful brushstrokes! Love how you laid that paint right on!

  6. Mon ami Léo serait heureux d'être près de moi pour admirer cette merveilleuse peinture de l'un de ses cousins!...
    J'aime son oeil vif qui semble nous observer.
    Une très jolie peinture.

    Gros bisous à vous.
