Can't quite see the definition around the beak at such a small size, but my first reaction was that it's really good.

Thank you so much.. I do see what your saying about the beak.. It is the size but could have distinguished a little more...

I agree with Alan, although it is only small detail. The background really brings out the bird. Beautiful job, Keep em coming.

LOVE the greens in this piece.  very, very nice.  my only suggestion would be to add areas of shadow to give it more form.  wow!  really beautiful greens in this piece!

Your work on the bird is beautiful! I think if you added stronger color in the background -- Maybe worked the background more to lessen hide the look of paper behind the bird -- that would add even more pop to this great piece.

I like the view you took of the bird. The fact that his head is so close draws the viewer in.  It makes me feel connected to the bird, reminding me of how a dog might look at one if his or her humans.
