Revisiting the Cockatoo

You may remember my previous attempt at drawing a cockatoo. I felt like revisiting that image tonight and making it into a painting. I rather like it. I continue to enjoy my drafting table, and am proud to say that this little guy was painted on it. I was very conscious of my brushstrokes, and let many of them show instead of blending them for smoothness. I continue to struggle with how to paint feathers, but hopefully with a little research and trial-and-error, I'll get it down.
