Description

Cockatoo Verde is the first painting I have started and completed since returning from a long overseas European winter holiday. It was grey and wintery in Paris and London in January, the trees were all totally bare and devoid of greenery.

And whilst I did have an absolute ball (understatement), basking in all that amazing history, culture and Champagne, I think this first studio painting of the year sums up my happiness to get back to my sub tropical city surroundings.

Featuring all the amazing tropical plants growing wild and free in the front gardens of my neighbourhood, I wanted to create a work that encapsulates the hot and humid Australian summer. If I could add sound effects to this painting it would be the deafening Cicadas and screeching Lorikeets.
