Yellow-tailed Black Cocky by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour and gouache painting. It measures 27cm x 37cm and is unframed.

Another one of my favourite cockatoos is the Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo. 

There have been quite a few of these slightly pre-historic looking birds in our area of late. I love their slow flapping motion as they screech through the sky before landing in the abundant Banksia tree for a delightful feed.

 

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.
