Thank you for the motivation Mea, Val, Emma lee, Win.
Liz, yes in a big Format there will be more space for other lovely creatures. I like Henry Rousseau's paintings too. Will have to get some more inspiration and get started. 🙂

At last I finished my commission painting. Painted on a canvas ( 120 cm x 100 cm) with a golden base... the photo is taken at night with artificial light. In real it looks great with bright colours and the gold shines through.  I am quite happy With the result. I decided to put just birds. I shall make a photo during daylight and update this.
Love to hear your comments.

i like the look of this Gita. It did take me a while to find the birds, any chance you could increase their value/brighten them up to stand out?

Thanks Mea.
Haha Val, like in the real rainforest you have to look out for birds! I kept them small since the rain forest is supposed to overpower the birds unlike my first painting. I shall make a daylight pic and also a close up of the birds. They are fantastic small fairytale birds based on the look of real birds in Seychelles.
The painting looks simple but it took me hours and hours for the composition, the background effects, etc.

Val, this is a better photo. Adding also the colourful birds as single photos. This could give a better impression of the colour brilliancy. The painting will also be hanging in the studio gallery on the "open day of all Art studios" ( this week end).

Oh, Gita, these closeups show the real beauty of this piece.  The vibrant colors are gorgeous and the little birds are so well done.

I love the style.

W-O-W!

 :clap:   O0  Well done Gita. The long hours have really paid off.
I agree the first time painting on a large canvas can appear daunting,to begin with,  but also exciting .
 Love the colours.

Gita i love the beautiful colours in this painting.
I didn't see the large painting until now, i saw your photos of the individual birds and thought you made a series of wonderful colourful paintings. I believe you could make individual paintings of each bird.  They would make beautiful cards.

Gita-Am just now spotting this in the forum.  So glad you were pushed to do this in oil, it is really creative and appealing.  More please.
