I have been wanting to paint a kookaburra for a while. I decided to paint the aceo one first - I have another one lined up but that one will be a 7 x 5 inch. I actually saw one the other day sitting on top of the street light. I often hear them in the early morning as they have a very recognisable laughing call. The kookaburra belongs to the kingfisher family and range from 28 - 42 cm in length.
Kookaburra measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.
Many thanks to Wayne Butterworth for the reference photo.
