"Sun Conure" Painting

"Sun Conure"
Acrylic on Canvas
9 x 12 inches

My first attempt at painting birds.  I loved his eye so much that I went on to paint three more that day.  Here's a close up of the eye so you can see it.  Now, I'm sure this type of bird has a name besides "rainbow parrot" but I don't know what it is!  LOL

Update:   My very good friend tells me this is a Sun Conure, which is a smaller parrot with a great personality!  Thanks for the info dear!

This is from a photo in an issue of Bird Talk magazine.  He had such bright colors that I just had to see if I could paint him.  They had him on a perch in a store, but through the magic of painting we were able to change that setting. Plus I wanted to do a black background like my Sister does on some of her paintings.


Thanks for looking!
