The majestic Parrot Macaw can be found here. Produced to a photo quality finish by airbrush, you can see the individual feathers on this piece of art.
In the below work in progress pictures you will see how the parrot is being built up, layer by layer.
This was one of the first pieces that I saw finished. Although not huge, the picture captivates you as soon as you walk into the room.
The colours are unbelievably vibrant and striking, that just like the real parrot you will not be able to ignore this parrot macaw! I do hasten to add, this one doesn't talk back.
The final artwork was one of the first into the photo realism world for Su. Due to this and how striking the image is, it was placed within the Zenzaris banner at the top of her Website. There he can keep a beady eye on you!
How did this piece come about? Su was asked if she could paint a bird... think the answer to that is yes. When asked, Su has mentioned that she has learnt a lot more about airbrushing since painting this piece.
As she is further on her artistic journey she has stated that she would tackle this bird differently should she do similar again.
The macaw is now sold and resides in a gold frame with looking over his new family.
