I paint objects as I think them,
not as I see them.

– Pablo Picasso

For me it's always a bit of both.
Visionary realism is about moving beyond what's immediately visible.
The subtleties and nuances always take me forever.

I've been tweaking the colors and beak size and shape

on both of these paintings. I think I lost a bit of the magic by softening the iridescence… May have to put it back!

    If you compare the two you can see that the beak is larger and more curved, and the colors are more subtle on the finished ( I think it's finished) second image.
