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.

The original image measures 43cm x 35cm wide.

Recent Commissions for Australian Native Bird Art

Scarlet chested Parrots final 2 MR Watercolour (8)Visiting Aspects Gallery of Kings Park, Perth, as the resident artist for a few days in September had some unexpected spin-offs. While I met lots of new people and a few long term (but unknown) collectors of my paintings, I received a request for commission paintings. This commission including three paintings of Australian magpie and the cute WA legend- the Quokka.

Within a month of returning home I received yet another request and this time for three paintings of Australian parrots. The couple in this instance had fond memories of the smaller parrots from childhood as so took the opportunity to decorate their home in WA with paintings of the Western Rosellas and Scarlet-chested Parrots with two more paintings to come of Turquoise Parrots and Bourke’s Parrot.  Producing Australian Native Bird Art is a lot of fun and its very satisfying to meet other people who love these birds.

You can see the images of the Scarlet Chested Parrot and Western Rosella paintings here:
