Jungle Painting

Scarlet Macaws
Costa Rican Scarlet Macaws

I have been working on some artwork for my sister. She wanted something that looked like an old tropical postcard. So first I painted the nice little Costa Rican Landscape below and then put it through the photoshop ringer, and after a lot of masking and engraving filters was able to deliver the above painting. I like it. Especially the color tones on the mountains in the background.

There are more elements to this piece but I will post them at a later time.
