Kukla and Paddy animal portraits

Kukla, Portrait of an African Grey Parrot; 10 x 8 inches watercolor on artboard by Marlene Lee
Paddy, Portrait of a West Highland White Terrier, 10 x 8 inches watercolor on art board by Marlene Lee

Love doing these animals especially the parrot. I’ve never done a parrot or any bird. But I painted them like I paint the furry animals, close attention to the structure of their heads and to the textures. With Kukla, I used lift the color with semi-dry stiff brush to create the ends of the feathers. It was a great challenge!

To commission a portrait visit my Etsy shop. I offered pet portraits in either oils or watercolors.
