A rainbow of feelings, each color had a meaning, yet it was much simpler just to admire the creature... That special bird carried on it a variety of concepts and things it could have never imagined. Not many would risk such a harmony of many colors. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, indigo... many... but not enough. For that bird was a rainbow colored with many elementals, but where were black and white?

...and gray?
Lost in the rain, perhaps.

No gray, black and white. Just colors... the colors of many aspects in life. Carried in a joyful ride by an imaginary bird that knew nothing about the different hues its feathers could take in time...

As promised previously, I tried another version of the rainbow colored bird, hopefully, much better this time - and much larger. I'm very proud of it., especially since I didn't need to re-do it on computer and contrast and saturation only did it all... Except for the far left part of the right wing - I had to draw its last feathers on computer. The head and some leg feathers are gray (white+black) and the color range is: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet - only a bit different from the usual order I tend to present colors.

It's a sort of jumping position, or when the wings just prepare to stretch. I found the horse-type tail and the long hair much better suited for the playful colors.

!Attention!: this is a large picture, so it is advised to try the "Full size" button, just in case...
