Artist's description:

23 x 30 cm
I love to paint cockatoos; last summer we had swarms of them flying around our local park at dusk and the atmosphere was electric! This painting is quintessentially Australian with our cheeky crested boy perched on a native bottlebrush tree, accompanied by red gum blossoms. The red coloured flowers perfectly compliment the beautiful deep navy blue bird and flora. This painting looks beautiful as one of a pair - it is the same size and similar theme to ‘ Indigo Cockatoo and Coastal Banksia’ also available for sale in my Art Finder shop.

I’m a colour junkie and I love working in limited and interesting colour combinations. For this gouache painting I have mixed the paint into a more opaque consistency, to give a flat screen print feel to the piece. Colour, shape and line are the heroes, and the white line work on the feathers is very intricate and gives my work it’s unique Australian flavour.

This painting is on thick 350gsm Waterford Watercolour paper and has been painted with the highest quality light fast pigment Gouache paint ensuring your investment stays vibrant for many years to come.
