Acrylic on canvas
A few weeks ago I saw some Pukeko at Hoopers Inlet on the Otago Peninsula. I have painted my version of them. They are full of character and quite amusing. I love the colour of their plumage a beautiful indigo blue with black and white. This is contrasted by a brilliant bright scarlet beak and red legs. They can run quite fast. They are swamp birds perferring wetlands.
