It ain't easy being green. If there's one bird in the world who knows this, it is the Kakapo.
Kakapos are flightless nocturnal parrots (the only of these two things in the world), native to New Zealand. They are incredibly rare - less than 150 of them are left in the wild, making them one of the rarest birds in the world. They are therefor, of course, listed by the IUCN as 'critically endangered'.
This original ink drawing features the beautiful, clumsy looking Kakapo making his way through the forest on foot. I painted the artwork with vibrant inks and coloured pencils on 300gsm Cotman watercolour paper. It is framed in a 12 x 12 inch frame made of painted solid pine, and finished with UV glass to protect the ink from fading in sunlight.
What better way to celebrate this unique bird, than with a unique, one-of-a-kind artwork?
Artwork is signed and dated on the front, and comes with d-loops on the back, so that it is ready to hang.
