Designing a Custom Painting - Take Two

20x20 Oil on Linen
Original Sold/ Prints Available/ Click Title
 
This is the progress of the second commissioned painting. I applied varying lengths of diagonal brush strokes including pale blue, green, and white, in the direction of the perceived light source. Additionally, I used less purple in the background, since it is a primary color forming the bird's body and wings. The suggestion of a palm tree adds to the tropical island theme that I was trying to create.

When viewed together, they appear to connect and complement each other. 
                      
 
I have received approval for both paintings and will fly them to SoFlo when the paint dries!
