Parrots playing in the ferns

Here is a photo hot off the press (or the artist's workbench) of three parrots playing in a pile of ferns. The watercolors are very vivid in this painting, and the colors reflect a tropical scene well.

This is a painting of a horse and rider performing the "Courbette" movement, where "the horse balances on its hindlegs and jumps, keeping its forelegs off the ground, thus it "hops" on its hindlegs" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_dressage). The crowd in the background is simply drawn as a collection of small dots, whereas the horse and rider are painted in more exquisite detail.
