From the teacher: "Over the many years of my teaching career I have been asked neumerous times about painting red birds, but most often about how to paint a colorful parrot. The Macaw bird is the largest of the parrots. It's beautiful red feathers are brilliant and stand out against the backdrop of the deep green rainforest. This particular bird is actually a red and green macaw, known as the Green Winged Macaw. In the photograph above you can just see the start of some of the green feathers along the back of the bird."

                      So you want to know 'How to Paint A Parrot' 

"If learning to paint a tropical bird is on your agenda, I will show you how. I love to paint all tropical birds, mostly because of their beautiful and brilliant colors! But the red color of this bird was the inspiration for painting this macaw. In this online painting class I share a step by step approach using an indirect style of painting. The bird is developed with several layers that teach about color harmony and creating the translucency and depth of the red color. I will show you a great painting method to preserve the brilliance of the red hues by using a yellow/gold underpainting. This approach will show you how the beautiful golden under-painting will enhance the subsequent layers of red color."

    I always want to know how to paint a parrot? Painting a colorful parrot has always been a dream of mine. I found your online art class when I was searching the internet and was very happy with this painting class. The acrylic painting techniques that I learned from you will help me with painting all kinds of colorful parrot. There are so many others I want to learn to paint.
