(yep. You don’t often see them around here!)
This was a commission from Jon the waller in Kendal. It was one of his proudest ‘spots’ from his travels and he wanted it capturing in his back door… (Back door!!… I tell you.. haha…I would have charged more had I realised)
Anyway, the exotic bird is now ensconced in his (back) door in Kendal and we are both very happy with the results. I particularly loved experimenting with the background.
Really pleased with how the vertical lead lines and the drapery effect of the layered foliage work. The simple repetitive chaos of the background frames the bird just right to me. (I’d like to do this type of background again… anyone fancy it?!)
Here, see how it grew…. Thanks for the lovely commission Jon.
