I painted this one a bit differently to normal. Usually I do the background first and then paint the bird. But since this bird is predominately white, it would have been difficult to cover the green background. So instead I toned the canvas with burnt sienna, blocked in the bird, painted in the background and then finished off with the finer details of the bird. I love the fierceness of this bird and I am really please with the final painting
