I saw this bust at my daughter's house last weekend. I took photos of it and painted it. I thought it was pretty. I used turquoise,white,sienna and green and red. I like how it came out. I framed and signed it.
The Keel-Billed Toucans are done in oils and are framed. You can purchase the painting from my web site The background is done with a knife in soft colors to accent the pretty birds. I have been reading up on them and found their bills are soft and can be pliable.
This very large oil painting is on view at the Nelson road Iberia Bank in Lake Charles, La. It can be purchased there or on my web site. It was done from research photos I was loaned from a friend that was born in Lake Charles. The painting measures 24"x36" and is completely done with oils.
