As I painted the parrot, my client was thinking that he would like something else a little larger on the other side of the room to balance it out, tying into the same theme.
He wants something a little more stylised this time but maintaining the same harmony with the parrot. I have decided to do a stylised tree in the corner of the room with a fairly realistic jaguar sleeping on one of the branches. I didn't have to spend long persuading him!
I have only drawn the design in pencil on paper so stay tuned for pictures of the work in progress as I will begin painting this afternoon.
