Putting My Best Foot Forward - Sulphur Crested Cockatoo by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour and gouache painting. It measures 27cm x 37cm and is unframed.

Playful and nearly as smart as humans, Sulphur-Crested Cockatoos can be wildly unruly, but yet, can be so tame!  They can be destructive, but are also very smart! And when it comes to beauty they have their fair share, and they know it! This Cocky is putting his best foot forward!


This series represents my selection of six Australian native birds that are significant to me and to many other bird-loving Australians. Their feathers are white, grey, black or brown without much colour or hardly any. The background colours of bright blue and umber signify their freedom in our skies and the umber brings them back down to earth.The technical focus is not particularly on detail, even though there is some, but predominantly on their expressions. Their eyes are larger than normal but represent windows to their souls.
