Willie Wagtail in acrylics

The  Willie Wagtail is found around much of mainland Australia and I often see them in the garden and when I am out walking.  They are very quick though and don't sit still for very long.  I took the reference photo for this one down on the Gold Coast and just love its pose.

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