Ain't He Purty... Macaw portrait in oils by Sandra Cutrer Fine Art

The sketch is done on a 9" x 12" canvas panel. I have applied a mixture of Alizarin crimson red, and French Ultramarine blue. It makes a "black"- not a dull lifeless BLACK, but a natural "black" for the darkest areas and under layers needed to build upon.

He is nearly completed. I a apologize for not showing more of my steps while painting. Paintings have a mind of their own a lot of the time.Once the first strokes are added, I can't seem to stop for taking photos! I'll try to do better next time!

Finished- unframed

Finished- a look at it in a nice frame!

MaLee is interested in our local birds. I can sometimes tell  she wishes she could catch one, or two. She will look at me- like this photo captured- seemingly to say,"Aint he purty?"

Blessings to all,
