Step 16

Add some new color, strongly, to get the vividness and colorful look that I planned for. Purple, and pinkish hues are introduced, with varying intensity. Other colors are good to have, to avoid the flat look of the subject as well when we just use few gradations of the same color all over.
I highlight the feathers as well, at a few areas only.

Step 17

I analyze the over all look again, adjust the eye a bit, which seems to be a little off. I also blended some parts of the body and added a few strokes of feathers breaking the outline of the body, to enhance things more. Beak also gets more defined now, with some light and dark strokes. I put some while and off white on the face as well.

Note: In the end, I like to have an unfinished, rough look for this, for me that is more painterly. Again, it's a personal thing, one must paint in whichever style one likes to, to have a desired look.

For me, this painting is done, I like it like this, so before overdoing and spoiling it, I decide to give it some finishing touches all over.

Beautifully done. I will give ArtRage a try. It seems more intuitive than Photoshop. Your work looks like real paint on canvas! Thanks very much for sharing!
