I started this a week ago - just after I did the pastel version - see Parrots In Pastel. The first two stages were done from life.
Unfortunately I had to break off due to various commitments last week - but managed to get it finished last night as most of the work that was left was the work required to strengthen the colours and values.
This is the final version is now included in the Flowers Gallery on my website "Pastels and Pencils" - this is the link http://www.pastelsandpencils.com/flowers.html
