Gouache and watercolour on thick textured Saunders watercolour paper 650gsm with deckled edges. Unframed

Description

This work features my signature Cockatoo in an Australian Botanical scene that includes a Sandstone background generated by varying the paint consistency from opaque to a watery wash.

I'm currently exploring the use of more earthy colour hues with my flora and fauna themes and I'm really enjoying the change. The ochres, deep reds and dark blues are sublime, and create a more moody vibe than their jewel bright cousins. As with all my work; this piece features many hours of intricate white mark making on the leaves and feathers which can be seen if you zoom into the pictures.

It is painted onto very thick Arches textured watercolour paper which features a beautiful deckled edge on all sides and would make a lovely warm addition to your Australian home.
