Reflections in the Afternoon

Bronzewing Pigeons resting in the early afternoon

Watercolour painting on Arches 300GSM Hot Press Paper.

Our property consists of natural vegetation including Marri and Jarrah trees with a planted garden designed to attract birds. There are locations in the garden where Bronzewings tend to gather including a resting area underneath Allocasuarinas and tall shrubs. And it is this location that I have tried to portray in this painting of the male and female Common Bronzewings (Phaps chalcoptera). These birds are common around the urban area of Margaret River and surrounding bushland.

This was a three week project beginning with drawings, composition sketches and final painting.

The beautifully framed original is now available from Boranup Gallery.

Picture dimensions are 71cm wide and 51cm high

Price Framed $4250
