The Margaret River walking trails provide an excellent opportunity to observe many species of small birds. Occasionally, you get to see a small group of Red-eared Firetails in the bushland with various sedges and thickets of shrubs. These colourful little birds have been on my painting list for some time and now at last I have completed the watercolour painting with a simple composition.
This is a watercolour painting on 300gsm Arches Hot Pressed (smooth) Paper. The original image measures 43cm x 35cm wide.
The Original can be obtained from Boranup Gallery.

I remember that during our 11 + years in Alice Springs, whenever I got to travel west of Alice that I kept an eye out for Princess Parrots- I never got to see them in the wild. These beautiful birds with soft colour tones are a rarity for bird watchers mainly because they normally occur in the remote deserts of Western Australia (i.e. Great Victoria Desert, Gibson Desert and Great Sandy Desert).
It seems that their colours vary considerably in intensity from bird to bird.
