Re: Top 10 most quintessential parrots

Oh yes that budgie does look terrific!

Can I make a suggestion for maybe parrot number 10b - the rainbow lorikeet? I’d love to see your take on that riot of colour!

Re: Top 10 most quintessential parrots

Thanks all! I plan to do a cockatiel next, but first I have to finish a commission piece that will no doubt take a few more days.

Ooooohhhhh a lorikeet! They are very colorful and common in some parts of the world (I think?).

Re: Top 10 most quintessential parrots

April, that's incredible!!! I was thinking (dunno why, but I was) that he'd be a predictable water colour painting of your usual budgie. What you've done is alive and vibrant and it expresses the big-bird-in-a-little-bird's-body nature of a budge *perfectly*! Can't wait to see more of your amazing art.

Re: Top 10 most quintessential parrots

Likely because it is influenced by an Amazon!

Re: Top 10 most quintessential parrots

Cool style ! Its like a combination of psyadelic and mezo-American. Like an Aztec on acid style. Me likey. Cant wait til you get to the exotic parrots, so I can submit Salty's species, a yellow shoulder Amazon.
