red white and blue bill

i am continuing with the process of taking the previous week's palette and using it to make the background pattern for the following week.  in this portrait, rose red and ultramarine blue comprised the background. so, i used those two colors in this week's palette as well. the entire work - the background and the portrait - are comprised of those two colors (plus pale yellow to make the red an orange, the complement of blue).
