Blue-headed macaw (Primolius couloni)

This small-sized macaw is living in Brazil, Bolivia and Peru. I’m really fascinated by its colours: the dominant blue head and the mostly green, olive feathers. I always feel macaws are having a unique face; which gives them a somewhat cheeky, but smart look. I have chosen to add that warm, yellow-orange background to give the painting an overall lively, vibrant feel - which, I think, is a matching characteristic to these intelligent birds.
