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 unframed original is now available directly from the Artist.
Dimensions 71cm wide and 51cm high
Price unframed $4250
