Artist's Description

Black ink and watercolour on 300g smooth hot pressed Arches watercolour paper. Original 140 × 180mm. This painting took about 10-15hr to do, and the bird is composed of roughly 8-10 layers of very transparent washes and fine brushstrokes – that’s the benefit of 100% cotton rag paper – the surface may be unforgiving (can’t lift colour) but it is extremely robust!

I am fortunate to regularly see these beautiful birds where I am living now in North QLD (Townsville).
