|I left the poor bird here ... just a mass of feathers.|
|I used quin. violet, burnt orange and indanthrone to mix up some blue/violet for the beak and feet, black for the eye, and a brown for the branch.|
|I then went back in with the ultramarine/pink mixture, and gave the bottom of her body some definition.|
|I used the same blue/pink color to start adding some definition to her head feathers ...|
|... and kept on going till she looked right to my eye.|
