Sketches for Kauai Painting-Day 3

© Ellen Blonder
I photographed Daphne, the cockatoo who's sort of a mascot at the Kong Lung center in Kilauea. She was actually chewing on a chain in the pose on the right. I may want to put her somewhere in the painting. Her white plumage would make a nice focal point against dark foliage and colorful flowers. Daphne played catch with me on a previous visit, but this time she was mostly intent on preening herself.

  1. Ooohhhh, I LOVE those. Did you finish the painting? I would love to share your work with my Kilauea friends and family.
