sneak peek of Sophie - Rosella Parrot - commissioned pet portrait

WORK IN PROGRESS
(larger than actual)
Thought I'd share a sneak peek of what's currently on my easel as I've been working on this commissioned double portrait of two exquisite Rosella birds.  Shown here is Sophie on day 2 just following the initial underpainting.  Will show more current pics shortly. 

At this point I haven't yet decided if she'll be eating a berry, nut or a leaf.  I suspect it will be a torn leaf as I'd have to reposition her lower beak for a nut or berry.  Also, been reserching to decide in which variety of Eucalyptus they'll be perched, which will then influence my decision as to what Sophie will be eating.
