Hidden in Shadows
Colorful tropical bird turns his head as he perches in shadows on branch with sunlit yellow-green background. Blue, red, yellow, green. Jungle. Tropical. Large Painting by artist Donald Ryker in textured expressionist impressionist art style with unique impasto glaze technique.
This blue parrot perches hidden in the branches. He has a perfect view of the bright day while feeling safe and secure. I painted him using layers of blue, purple, and green, plus shades of red, coral, and purple. The background is a vivid lime green washed with a blue glaze. Sometimes it’s really nice to be the observer. Stepping back out of sight can give you the chance to watch and enjoy the view. —Donald Ryker
