A tropical toucan in purple yellow and green perches on jungle foliage. Jungle. Tropical, Purple, red, orange, green yellow. Large Painting by artist Donald Ryker in textured expressionist impressionist art style with unique impasto glaze technique.
This Toucan is perched on a mossy branch with water flowing beneath him. I love the colors. Blue feet! And the black body has tones of red coming through. It was very fun to paint this cheerful bird. I used purple glaze over a green background to create the flowing water. The Toucan himself is red and yellow. I followed up the red with a few coats of purple glaze. The branch was done with purple background, sponged moss and a small brush to make the bromeliad. What a rich environment for color exists in the tropics. – Donald Ryker
