Artwork Description

Watercolour on paper

Signed on the front.

"Elegantly Perched on a Limb" by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour and requires framing to hang.

A Sulphur Crested Cockatoo can be so elegantly beautiful with its pure white plumage that takes on hues of the environment and light yellow crest. The shape of the beak even indicates a smile of such, which makes them even more attractive. Cockatoos have a way of acting like clowns and can be as raucous as they come. They are very clever and can be taught to speak and the lucky ones can live up to 100 years!
Painted without prior sketching, gives me a freer hand and allows me to capture the essence of my subject better. I hope you feel it too!

Mission: I strive to express emotion in my artwork and hope it resonates with you too. I hope that it evokes a positive feeling of joyful peace and that it brightens up a special spot in your home. My style is a combination of looseness and detail, allowing watercolour to do its magic and then adding some detail bringing the subject to life.

Images: For optimum screen viewing, this painting has been professionally scanned depicting the colours as true as possible. They may still differ a little depending on your screen.
