Blue Winged Kookaburra in acrylics

I took the reference photo for this one a few year ago at Australia Zoo.  I printed it out ages ago to paint.  I have a huge pile a reference photos that I keep adding to so every now and again I will go through the pile and rediscover reference photos that I had forgotten about.  

Blue Winged Kookaburra measures 8 x 8 inches and is painted on Colourfix Smooth Paper.

The painting is available for purchase through Bluethumb.  To view the listing, please click here.

Spring Bluebird in acrylics

I love how this one is perched on the branch.  When I finished the painting, I decided to add the flowers as there was a bit too blue and flowers add a pop of colour against the background.


Spring Bluebird measures 6 x 4 inches and is painted on Colourfix Smooth Paper.

Many thanks to Andy Reago & Chrissy McClarren for the reference photo.
