Pale-headed Rosellas 2


This time I wanted to show a page from the 'Design Book', the sketchbook I use to plan and design what's in my mind before the actual painting. I developed this one from a few sketches (http://matteogrilli.blogspot.com/2011/04/pale-headed-rosellas.html) and a couple of photos collected from a walk at Toohey Forest, south Brisbane. Although these birds, now a favourite of mine, are so colourful, in some conditions of light they can camouflage extremely well within their environment. Also, I would like to share with you my joy after taking part in the Brisbane rally organized by Animals Australia against the live export of cattle and sheep, it was good to see how many people are passionate and caring about animal welfare, to know more follow the link: http://www.animalsaustralia.org/features/thousands-rally-against-live-export.php
Until next time!                                    Matteo

  12. HI Matteo,beautiful! great to see the page from your design book. I am wondering whether the pale-headed rosellas have a similar character to the eastern rosellas. The 'easterns' are rather timid and quiet and often seem to visit our place in pairs. Got such a cute call as well. The crimson rosellas are a completely different in personality. Amazing isn't it that such a colourful bird could ever be hard to spot. So glad I have found your beautiful blog. I adore our Australian birds!

    Thanks for the Australia Animals link!
