Medium

Mainly acrylic with artist inks and markers

Description

Original painting on a quality, pure, stretched, cotton canvas. All sides of the canvas are painted with the flow of the theme. Fixed with d-rings and wire ready to hang.

What was it that inspired me to paint this bird? The array of colours that they have and the natural beauty with in them. Stunning and delightful.
Over many years I have see these birds often, mainly when I lived in the UK (17 years ago). But then I was able to see these birds at Taronga zoo and photographed many images ready for this painting.
I love to paint/draw all things nature related, animals especially.

Media - I used mainly acrylic, but to really get the fine details of the feathers I used permanent art markers, inks and a fixative to ensure these last just as long as paint. It took a few weeks to get this painting exactly as I wanted and of course the size of the painting.
I loved painting this little guy, although not so little in the painting, as you will see in one of the images with me holding the canvas.
