Birds of a Feather - Cockatoos

22x15 watercolor of three yellow crested cockatoos amongst vivid orchid-looking tropical flowers, an imaginary scene.  I love to paint white birds and each endeavor is a challenge to sneak enough color into their wings to have proper value scale.  This one was done a few years ago wet in wet on 140 lb cold press paper.  I've used some negative painting shapes here and there.
