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.
