Artwork Description

Archival Drafting Film

Signed on the front.

Frame not included

The superb array of wildlife in Australia is all the inspiration that I need to create my artworks. This Major Mitchell Cockatoo feasting on one of his favourite foods embodies the freedom that is currently at threat of disappearing for our birdlife. The reference for this piece was from a photo generously donated for artist use by Cheryl McKellar. I fell in love with the simple beauty and sense of life that this Cockatoo showed while feasting.
My use of coloured pencils on drafting film allows my to create the both the delicacy and at times boldness of his colouring.
