Kookaburra Ponderings by Jaana Day

Currently unavailable for purchase

Genesis heat set oils on A4 canvas.
This kookaburra was sitting up on a high stump watching all the Australia Zoo visitors passing by. He posed very nicely I might add :)

Drawing has always been a part of how I express myself. In 2004, I began painting with acrylics. Since 2008 I have mostly used Genesis heat-set oils.
Colour excites me and especially the way light plays on colour. All subject matters are potential paintings but I do prefer to have some sort of emotional connection with what I paint.

    Fantastic painting. Love the pose you have captured.

  • Thank you very much Sandra. When I snapped some shots of the kookaburra at the zoo, he was looking at us all very quizzically!
