"Rainbow in the Magnolia"

I finished painting the leaves in the far right corner, using clean, bright colours.  I even added some pure light blues (the same ones used in the bird and the background) to brighten them up.  I actually went back into the background at the last minute and feathered off some of the sharper lines that were standing out too much.  Then I called it - Finished.

I named the painting "Rainbow in the Magnolia".  I know Magnolias aren't native to Australia, but this tree has a special significance for me and all my visiting birds love to sit in it.  Anyway, this one is a keeper as I will be doing more birds perched in my Magnolia.
