acrylics on canvas.
It's not bad. A few things, though:
Your colors are swapped around! If you're going for a rainbow look (which is pretty apparent), you should probably have the correct order of the colors of the rainbow. Yours: B, P, G, R, Y. The appropriate order would be: P, B, G, Y, R.
Even if you don't care about that, I have a couple issues with the hands. The back of the hand looks a little too round and plump. Hands actually have fairly flat backs. Then there are some problems with the fingers: They don't have enough contrast in length. The index finger is fine, but the middle finger should be longer than the index, not shorter, as you have it. The image cuts off too high, so we can't see the whole pinky, but it looks too thick from what I can tell.
Lastly, the cigarette looks pretty flat. Add some shading.
The bird is the strongest part. The painting isn't bad, though. Keep it up.
