I love birds.
New work just off the easel. Swish, is my abstract-impressionist expression of the amazing peacock. Here he shakes his brilliant plume after a rainfall. I had so much fun painting this piece. I felt free and uninhibited. I wanted to push the boundaries of my comfort zone. Colourful, textural and expressive. This is a statement piece that will add the "wow" factor to any space.
I was instantly captivated by this gorgeous bird. I did a couple of sketches first and then decided to keep the background minimalist/abstract so that this beauty would stand out. Here is my finished oil painting of the beautiful Victoria Crowned Pigeon. This stunning bird, with its exquisite plume, lives on the island of New Guinea and on a few surrounding islands. I plan on exploring artistically with this subject, and hopefully more paintings will be created to show you.
