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

“Free As” Welcome Swallow in Flight is available as an Original Watercolour
Welcome Swallows are simply elegant and graceful small birds of the rural wetlands and urban verandahs. We notice the while stains on a footpath, look up, and there is the nest with adult birds feeding the chicks in their cozy mud nests. Or, winging over a plain of water in the evening light swooping down and around to collect insects in their little open beaks.
This is a watercolour painting on 300gsm Arches Hot Pressed (smooth) Paper. The original image measures approx. 36cm x 25cm wide.
The Original can be obtained from the artist at this stage.
Framed price $545
