This is from a photograph I took during visit to Brazil.  When I saw the Toucan I was fascinated.
The photo below is my reference photo.
Revised Toucan. Comments are much appreciated

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Yes fascinating birds aren't they. Nice background and composition, I would suggest you change the color of the cross pieces so they do not clash with the bird color.

Thank you so much Bill. Good suggestion. I tried the same colours from the reference. I wonder whether I will be able to change the bars or may be add more white!!

I don't see why you cannot change from the photo Pram. A grey might work?

The photo is there only as a guide. You may change anything to any colour you want. I do that very often.

Sorry Bill, Dennis and Mary Lou, I think I did not voice my question properly.  What I meant is because I have already painted this colour will I be able to change the cross bar colour to grey or other colour by painting over the blue? If I do the painting again I will make the bars either silver grey or antique gold with rust markings  :)

Very nice painting. I love the  vibrant colors we see on some birds. You did a wonderful job with the color matching. Don’t ever feel like you can’t change something in your artwork. I spend a lot of time color correcting in my paintings.  :crazy2:
