Continuing with my bird series is the striking Australian Major Mitchell, known as one of the most beautiful cockatoos, with its lovely pink and salmon tones and brilliant red and yellow crests. Meet ’ Major’ who is a part of my larger painting to be loaded on completion. This is just a close up shot of one of the birds I am painting for you to see details.
Striking cape opened wide
showing off colours with so much pride.
A mate is seen so must impress,
spreading feathers of a bright headress.
Sure to catch this mate so fair,
what was one will soon become a pair.
