Mr. Bini is my first bird portrait and all his lovely feathers were a delight to paint. I had to take time to study several photos of this face to distinguish the differences and to choose his most pleasant expression. Parrots can look somewhat beady eyed which wouldn’t have pleased his mum. Mr. Bini is a very handsome Senegal parrot.
I have done some picture books and color and write projects with many different animals as the main protagonists. After having spent time with Mr. Bini, I feel a parrot picture book coming on. Please check out my many books on my gallery page or on my Color and Write Stories page.
