Lilac-Breasted Roller

Today, my hubby took a Lilac Breasted Roller in his lunchbag.

The Doodlewash prompt for April 8 is birds. I’ve never seen a Lilac Roller in real life but I love to paint them. They have eight colors in their plumage – green white, black, yellow, turquoise, dark blue, reddish brown and lilac. How could you not love painting a bird like that?
