Green Magpie

Green Magpie - student project

Here is mine, not to pleased with it because I forgot my art supplies  while farm sitting. So bought some Bristol paper. Not good for gouache. Background is funky. And busy. Any suggestions? Not sure I like the Prussian blue background. Should I make it darker or change it to turquoise so everything stands out, or more towards purple black? 
love this idea thought, thanks for the class, I definitely will do some more of these. Today picking up some watercolor paper to try out. Small town limited art supplies, haha. 
Will the cartrige paper you used work well for gouache? I ordered some from Amazon so when I get home it should be fun to try out.
