It has been a long time since I could show an acceptable picture. The painting - oil on stretched canvas 60 x 80 cm - helped me to return to painting. C + c very appreciated.

It's lovely! Really good rich colours and I like the light on the yellow. I like how you've done the background too. :)

Beautiful use of light. I love the highlights in the feathers and the composition is great. As for C&C, the top right background seems a little unfinished in comparison to the rest of the image. It may be the photograph but it looks like it needs another layer of green to fill in the gaps of white in the canvas.

Craig, thank you for your comment. The right background wasn't really dry, therefore the glare.
