The Storyteller: Galahs on the gum tree

GALAHS SMALL _D8H6280

CHARACTERS OF THE OPEN PLAINS

We have several Galahs visiting our garden and surrounding open land. The antics they get up to when relating to one another is often humorous and appears to be playful. But they also squabble and peck at one another in order to protect their space on a branch or to be near a mate- or so it seems.  While they are also known in WA as Pink and Greys, their colouring does vary with soft pinks through to deep or strong pink- particularly around the face- but not always. There is also often a dusky grey “wash” over the feathers on the abdomen. And even under the wings, there are some grey feathers tinged with pink.

This painting was designed to illustrate that fun behaviour of Galahs and while setting out the sketches it came to me that one bird was perched as if telling a story to the others. Thus the title of the painting.
