Java Sparrows are very fun to paint. From their white cheeks and bright pink beaks to their slate blue tuxedo and pink feet, so much fun! The Java is an introduced bird species to Hawaii. They are all over the islands, very curious and extremely active.
Today, my Javas are playing around on the sunflowers up on Oahu's North Shore. The background color was giving me trouble, but I landed on the perfect bright cadmium red. Love it!
