About the Image(s)

This months Malachite is different from the previous one . All done in PS cc in layers and I painted in a different background.

All comments welcome and I trust that I can also contribute to the remarks.

You take a magnificent primary image and you manage to make an even better work of art out of what is near perfection to begin with.
A lovely painting of a gorgeous bird.   Posted: 10/03/2019 15:52:31

The background adds a nice interest and texture and adds contrast to the bird. The painting texture on the bird is attractive and enhances the feathers. Is that a slight oil paint?   Posted: 10/04/2019 15:24:34

The paint strokes and subsequent feather detail in the bird are excellent. The painted background adds to the presentation of this image. A perfect composition and a great painting technique brings this image to an elevated artistic plane. Great effort and result.   Posted: 10/05/2019 13:27:02

I love the brilliant colors and the textured feathers. The slightly textured background helps make this a more interesting painting. Nice work, Gerhard.
