For The Long Haul

“Scarlet Macaw” (wip)

Originally I had planned to just do the head of this Macaw in red and use my artistic license to do the feathers in black. But as I was finishing up the head portion, I just said, “Oh what the hell, keep going with the red.” It’s more work to stipple in color, especially when you want those colors to look vibrant. A lot of layering is involved but so far so good. Unfortunately though, this piece will probably take longer to complete than I’m used to. This will definitely be a test of my patience but I’m in it for the long haul. 😊
