:wave: This was from the monthly challenge. It is a 9 x 14 watercolor, on Arches 140CP. I am trying to interpret subjects more creatively, instead of just copying the ref photo, which I posted first. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Beautiful. I love the changes to the background, it's completely changed the mood of the picture and I like how the colours shine through and reflect off the feathers. I too am working on this ref, I haven't got very far though! :)

I am glad you posted this on the open forum and not only in the challenge. It is such a lovely painting.

Thanks for looking and commenting!

Chammi, I assumed it would be allowed to post in other forums other than the challenge so your kind words are appreciated.
