I was looking for some lessons on how to paint birds. So I purchased an e-pack instruction kit from Donna Gilbertson (064 - Parrot Collection 3 in one pack) as the ones I had tried previously looked like something the cat dragged in...

These lessons were very challenging and I nearly gave up several times - but I kept hearing Mark's voice telling me if I am not having fun I am doing it wrong. LOL Thanks Mark, it has become my personal painting mantra now.

Taking heed of your words, and remembering the wisdom of the Garfield badge - I panicked slowly and it all suddenly clicked, and the birds looked like birds.

Well done you! Great to see where my art packs end up and what people do with them.

Hi Sami - love your parrots ... particularly the deep pink one. It really feels as though you are looking up at it perching in a tree.

My only suggestion would be that the branches could be painted off the edge of canvass so that it looks as though it is attached to a tree rather than appearing to float in mid air.

.... I'm a bit of a bird watcher so would love to see these birds in real life!
