It’s just a hop and a skip for me to go to Bangkok from where I reside, and I travel there regularly for my orchid hobby biz, and just for a change of scene. It’s a busy city and for the few days I’m there I’ll collect photo souvenirs of my little adventures and outings. Slowly I want to turn these into paintings. This is from a recent encounter there. This lady had rescued this cockatoo bird from a poor care situation. The lively colours I used may reflect how I was inspired at the sight of this wonderful bird.
The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
Next pictures are the work in progress.
