I'm not normally a fan of blue, but in this case the blueness is great, and the background is really interesting.

Nicely done, careful of making the background too busy, you dont want to loose the attention of the bird!

The background could be a painting in its own right Joy - Bizkit makes a good point!
The birdie looks angry!

I like it a lot. May I suggest lighter greens so that the bird pops out? The yellow green that you used is perfect complement. Also (if you wish) an echo of the "s" shape in the neck somewhere in the painting would be nice.

That said, I love it as it is.

I like it, very well done. As far as the title, I can also sense the emotion in the bird. Great job.

The bird is excellent. The background is too busy for my liking. You have to ask yourself what is more important, the bird or the background. The background is currently dominant and is very detracting. Good on ya for experimenting. You never learn unless you do.

lady and zan thanks for your eyes- i do light the idea of making it lighter- i'm considering glazing to make it a more muted tone- i've touched it yet - as i'm giving myself a few days to decide what to do with it
all thanks for the kind workds

:wave: I love it Mz! The background looks just like stained glass, and the blue bird is awesome! Honestly, I didn't find the background too busy. Just goes to show that things like this vary from person to person. In the end, you get to decide whether to tweak or not - sometimes making that decision is the hardest part! :)
