Description

Yellow Tailed Grey Cockatoo, Frangipani and Ferns.
Huge Limited edition (50) signed Museum grade Giclée Print on cotton rag paper stock.
Measurements: 84.1 x 59.4 cm | 33.1 x 23.4 inches

This handsome Cockatoo is perched on a frangipani tree from my garden. At the end of last summer I snapped off a piece of frangipani from my tree and popped it in a big vase. It lasted for most of the winter on my dining table and made me feel summery even when it was grey and miserable outside.

I took plenty of sketches from my 'specimen' and you will see if featured quite a bit in my work from the past year. For this piece I've used a combination of grey, greens and blues with a touch of yellow on the cockatoo tail and cheeks. I like to paint with Chinese calligraphy brushes, varying the paint consistency from thick and opaque to a watery wash which results in lovely random watermarks on the work. Cockatoos feature lots in my work, because they are so awesome. We often hear large flocks of them circling the skies above our house at dusk and screeching, we always stop what we're doing to go outside and marvel at them, it's such a treat since we live in the inner city.

This Museum Grade Giclée print of my original painting has been professionally printed by a specialist fine art reproduction print company using archival inks and heavy cotton rag textured paper. My Limited edition prints are catalogued and come with a certificate of authenticity. I recommend professional framing using archival matt board and glass to protect your investment for many years to come.

This print is sold unframed and will be carefully wrapped in tissue paper and rolled into a cardboard tube for safe shipping.
