This just finished painting has sold to Calgary, Canada. A pastel painting on pastel paper. As I live on a mountain range I like to include these in my paintings.
The idea or structure of the painting took place as I went along. I started with the lorikeet’s placement and then worked the story line around them.
I have no idea what the flowers are as they grew on our footpath where the lorikeets just loved them. Going through my photographs the inspiration of a painting grew as I viewed the flowers and birds.
The mountains and the Australian bushland came to mind for the background as did the river. The river came to life as I started to work on the background.
