WILLIE WAGTAIL ON THE Mossy Fence Post

Willie Wagtail on the Mossy Fence Post is available as an Original Painting or as an A4 Open print.

Select Watercolours above for more details of this and all other paintings

I last painted the Willie Wagtail about 15 years ago. I guess it would be fair to say that the long gap between pictures is an oversight on my part- particularly as a few people have asked about such a painting in recent years. This is another painting of a small but very popular, Australian Bird.

The painting measures 25cm wide by 33cm high.

Currently unframed.

Budgerigars after the Spinifex seed

Budgerigar updated watercolour 2 small _D8H6036

When wandering through the spinifex grasslands of central Australia I would occasionally encounter Budgerigars. As you passed by a small bushy Mallee out would fly a Budgie or three and scare the life out of you. And if you ever want to send yourself blind, try painting the striped feathers on the Budgie’s head.

White-cheeked Honeyeaters on Eucalyptus erythrocorys small

White-cheeked Honeyeaters are common birds within Kings Park Perth. And the E. erythrocorys and the other Eucalyptus mallees in the gardens are often good spots to find them feeding in the blossom

Often along the coastal sector of the South West of WA, where there is a small eucalypt in flower, there seem to be White-Cheeks; and probably a Red Wattle Bird as well. We also encountered them a little inland from Geraldton WA while living there for a year or so. Up there they seemed to like the thickets of hakea, wattle and grevilleas.

But the plant on which I have seen them most is the Illyarie planted either on roadsides or in parklands.

Dimensions of the painting are: 46cm x 57cm.

The original is available through Boranup Gallery.

The Storyteller: Galahs on the gum tree

The Original Painting is available as well as two sizes of limited edition prints. Scroll down for more details.

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.

Honkey Nut Heaven- Red-capped Parrots on a Pink Flowering Marri

Red-capped Parrots small _D8H6245

THE QUIET PARROTS OF THE WEST

With colours to challenge a harlequin clown, the brilliant Red-capped Parrots are surprisingly not so easily found in a tree. In parts of the south-west corner of Western Australia, they are moderately common birds. Large flowering grevillea shrubs in gardens and Marri trees laden with the bell shaped fruit known locally as “Honkey Nuts  are where they are most frequently observed feeding. The female is similar to the male but has duller colouration. Either bird can vary in size from 32cm to 39cm long- which is quite a remarkable difference in length. Red-capped Parrots are endemic to the South-west corner of Western Australia.
