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

We visited the Mount Buffalo and Falls Creek areas last September and were delighted to see so many Flame Robins. They seemed to find food in the snow which I guess could have been insects of some kind. One of the particular aims of the visit was to see the Snow Gums (Eucalyptus pauciflora) which are truly one of the worlds most amazing trees. The branches have colourful longitudinal stripes like broad pin-stripes of pale yellows and grey/blue bark and the occasional green or red bark. The background view is from the Mt Buffalo area.
This is a watercolour painting on 300gsm Arches Hot Pressed (smooth) Paper. The original image measures approx. 35cm x 45cm high.
The Original can be obtained from the artist at this stage.
