I worked this piece a little differently .. a different underpainting and more Alla Prima style. I didn't let the underpainting dry. This is the style of an old mentor of mine and I wanted to give it a go. what does everyone think?

I like it - interesting colors.  Love the subtle texture on the background.

I think the bird needs to be casting a shadow to make him look realistic on her shoulder.

Thanks Mea and Teresa. Something wasn't working for me either with the bird. Will put the shadow.
