Birds of Australia: Parrots
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Veronika Fojtova | Share link:

Realistic watercolour illustrations of Australian birds with backgrounds.

This project evolved from personal work affected by my recent move to Australia and my first impressions of Sydney as a city with many birds and parrots. My aim was to capture the real look of parrots but keep the painted impression. The outcome is something between a photo inspired painting and watercolour illustration. Here are examples of Major Mitchell’s cockatoo, Eastern Rosella and Rainbow Lorikeet. These are digital paintings.

Veronika is very talented and is professional in her communication. From the very beginning she made me feel understood and was a genuine pleasure to work with. Her execution of the idea and project was better than I could have imagined ever myself! I can't recommend working with her strongly enough without it sounding over the top... but that's precisely how I feel about the finished work I received from her- over the top thrilled with the final work.
