Toucan watercolor

What fun! Last night in watercolor class we painted a Toucan! Actually the rest of the class did the background only but I enjoyed it so much I did the bird at home after class.  Also I finally set up my palette more or less correctly with the teachers assistance since my ebay watercolors don't quite match the required stuff...Oh and we were required to only use the three primary colors and mix tertiary colors from those....The project was to teach us how to achieve different gray tones and browns with only three colors!!
It turned out pretty good but the tree on the right bugs me - you can see I modified it alot since #2-the color varies because I photographed it under different lighting.
