True Colours

I've found working with this palette much more challenging than I expected. Those saturated colours work so well in nature but, as Terry has remarked, are quite intense in a small composition but see that lime collar, that brings some relief!
Many before me have been entranced by the colours of rainbow lorikeets.  Tomorrow I hope to visit the exhibition The Governor: Lachlan Macquarie 1810 to 1821. Among the exhibits is the intriguing Macquarie Collector's Chest and look what's inside one of the main compartments.

How bizarre! I had not heard of a collectors chest. Maybe I wish I had never found out about it.:-)
