BAUDIN'S SHARING THE HARVEST SMALLCalyptorhynchus baudinii

Baudins- Sharing the HarvestWatercolour small detail of bird _D8H3837

An original watercolour painting on Arches 300 gsm Hot Pressed Paper.   Framing will occur after this painting is commercially photographed for the production of Limited Edition Prints. The painting is proposed to be featured in an upcoming exhibition in the South-West of WA: more news later. The painting features two male birds (pinkish eye skin and greyish bill and one female (grey eye, duller ear covets and pale bill). The bill of the Baudin’s Black Cockatoo is about 10-15mm longer than that found on a Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo.

Painting dimensions: 71cm high x 52cm wide (unframed).

$5500 Framed

The painting is designed to illustrate the relationship that our local wildlife has and can have with local primary production. There is a time to allow the sharing of a harvest with native animals such as these Baudin’s Black Cockatoos especially where not all is lost to “those thieving mongrel birds”. There is an ability in us to achieve a balance and enjoy both the product of our farming and the presence of our very unique local wildlife.

The birds and vines in this painting are drawn to about two-thirds actual size.

The Limited Edition Prints will be approximately 90% the size of the original.
