I like all of these, @mhqoil. The second and third are the best. I would paint number 3. As well as beautiful colours the moss on the branch adds a little more context and interest. But number 3 is very pretty, indeed. You would need to study the blurred wings carefully, though. I'd use my squint technique there.
Cheers, @mhqoil. There was a typo in my post which I have edited and corrected. I meant to say that I would paint number 2 - the bird on the branch. Number 3 is very nice but the background is a bit ordinary and the blurred wings might be problematic. Whichever one you choose to paint I think you are going to need phthalo to get those blue-greens. But it's very powerful so don't let it get into your other colours or you'll end up with a blue-green mess. I'd paint the whole bird very thinly in the darkest colour in the photo and when that is semi-dry I'd carefully lay in the power colours of the feathers and avoid blending blue into yellow etc. Colour check the colours in the feathers.Hope this is helpful.
