Bird of Paradise

I don't really have much to say about this one. I didn't really want to paint a bird of paradise because I feel like they are kind of cliche. What watercolor artist hasn't painted a bird of paradise? But I found this picture on Pinterest (of course, it's the only place I find photos to paint anymore) and I really liked the colors:

The only thing I wish I had done differently in this one is make the background more vibrant.

I've done lots of small paintings and I finally feel like I am getting the hang of things again. My opaque projector came this past week and think I am ready to start doing some larger paintings. I have so many ideas for paintings, I just need to decide which one to do first.
