Re: Parrot- FINISHED

Cathy , This is just about the most fantastic piece I've ever seen. I thought it looked great with the black background, but you topped even that. The different background gives it more depth. How did you cover the parrot when you sprayed it with the airbrush. I would have been scared to death to get any bg on the bird after all that work. Fantastic colors and feathers and detail in general. I could go on and on about how good this is but I'd better stop here. I know I will print this one and study your methods.

Re: Parrot- FINISHED

Thanks all for your very nice comments! It is always nice to see new faces in our forum

Hi Bonnie- For this piece I didn't use an airbrush, just a pintbrush for my inks. I just went over the areas that I had scratched on the background with the ink....

WOOOOOW This piece just really blows me away. The way you make the feathers look like they have the silken shine of real feathers like you could just touch them is amazing. Absolutly beautiful Cathy, absolutly beautiful.

Re: Parrot- FINISHED

Another fantastic work from another of my heroes. I've so missed checking into see y'all's stuff. And thanks Cathy for the Flicker info - I've always wondered myself and now I can try it. Congratulations on the win - how could it be any other way! Thank you so much for sharing. Lynn
