Coco the Parrot

I was really pleased with how Coco's portrait turned out. 
Pity I forgot to photograph the final picture! 
I do that sometimes. 

The blue pastel paper made the white feathers really stand out, 
so that was a good choice for contrast.

I loved how the blue supported the soft mauves and blues of the shadowed areas.

The thing I liked most about Coco's reference photo was that bright green apple. 
It adds interest to the picture and a fresh splash of colour, which ties in nicely with the yellow feathers.
