Oil Painting 'Rainbow Lorikeet' on Canvas 40 x 40cm. by 

Please click on image to view larger.

This painting was taken from a photograph I took & uploaded last year, I took artist License and painted the back ground quite differently. The bird was sitting in a tree but this shows the subtle lights of blue sky and sun peeking through the leaves with all over softer image. I live in the Adelaide Hills and the weather is more suitable to Rosella’s the Lorikeet’s prefer suburban gardens closer to the coast.
The painting on canvas measures 40 × 40cm.

I guess you could call me a shutterbug, I am for ever looking for something to photograph, and experimenting with my camera. Colour lights up my life, children, scenery, the sea in all it’s moods,native flora & fauna etc:- Please feel free to browse through the categories in my profile.
