Wow this one is something that really uses the "COLOR-SCHEMES". I think this submission is good for showing off your use of coloring and how you pick out good colors that will compliment each other and draw your eye in. The "BIRD" itself is well executed and thought out. I like the body positioning of this bird and the expression you give off with the eyes alone. The eyes are "STRONG" and the first thing I was drawn to, and I like that kind of feature with birds. You need strong eyes with birds and you've got that down. You also need to really understand the beek and body of feathers. I think you did a good job recreating something like this bird. I know it is a type I have seen before and I really like what you have done here. Even the addition of the flowers is good and I love having a nice colorful background prop to go with the main piece. The flowers work well with the tree and it all compliments each other in a nice steady flow from brush to brush. I would have love your white space background to be filled with a texture, perhaps a lace pattern to make it appear the art is printed off on lace. I feel that would have really given this some depth of feeling and enhanced the look overall. Keep up the good work though and keep focusing on using those nice color schemes you have done so well on here.
~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
I think the background could use some texture, maybe a lace effect to really make this shine.
