Close ups

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Marilou was the gracious host this week and provided a bunch of great photos! Thank you, Marilou!

 The Scarlet Macaw...I really like these birds because of the attitudes they display. Looks as if this one is about to tell a joke....hope it's clean...maybe you should cover your ears! :lol:
Once again some painting knife was used in this one. Plenty of texture.

  1. A beautiful, colorful bird, Dean! You can see the wonderful texture when you zoom on it!!

  2. He is beautiful, Dean! I wonder if all Macaws are as loud as my Hahn Macaw. That girl never shuts up!! I thought my white bellied caique was loud.

  3. Ahoy Matey!... Arghh!... Ye surely did capture me cocky attitude and "colour"... the visual language and the attitude in the facial gesture... more than makes up for the missing "colour"... in me Tongue!

    Shiver me timbers... ain't I jist a beautee Matey???

    Bravo Dean!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,

  4. Beautiful colors and beautifully rendered! What color did you use for the blue? Great painting!

    1. Hi, Kaethe!

      The blues were basically composed of ult blue, pthalo blue, and a wee bit of aliz crimson.

  5. I love this - strong and colorful and I cannot get over the eye looking directly at ME!

  6. Dear Dean - what a fabulous captured his colors so well. He does look like he is getting to say something and perhaps if he is ornery we will need to cover our ears (LOL)! Have a great week and thank you for sharing.

  7. Wonderful rendering and beautifully bright colors you've used on this bird.
