Another pen & ink on ceramic tiles. I am inventing new techniques with this medium to get better effects. I use a sharpened rubber, (a pencil with rubber instead of lead), to get the smudging effect. it softens the stark lines of ink.
The Major Mitchell Cockatoo is a native Australian relative of the parrot, and is a pretty pink and white color. They were named after an early Australian explorer – Major Thomas Mitchell who discovered the vast inland grass plains of southern New South Wales and the south western district of Victoria, referred to as “The Australian Felix”
this lovely pink and white noisy screeching cockatoo was, and still is found in abundance in these areas.
