Well, I guess I shouldn't paint when I'm tired and not enthused about what I'm painting.

I put some more color on this and it looked too wimpy to me.  (It actually looks better in this photo than it did in real life.)

So pushed the colors a bit behind him.  But I made some mistakes and had to go in with Chinese White (the horror!) to lighten some areas on him.  

As the Jedi Master, Yoda, would say, 
"Overworked, it is.  Lesson learn, you must!"

Jedi Master! I actually like this bird and do not think it's over worked at all. I like the green with the purple.

I like his expression, Rhonda, and the edge of light on his breast.
Also, your (to me!) brave color choice in the background!

I don't know, Rhonda. I think it looks fabulous.

I could use a Jedi Master right now - this weather is getting me so down down down, Carol :(

Laura, thanks so much. I do like the colors but he didn't live up to my expectations - perhaps I need to go in an reiterate some shapes on the egret?

Thanks Sherry. You are too kind!!
