I am a half way to finish this collection (10 artworks so far) ... this time I'm posting the Silver Gull and the Emu. I tried to use as less colour as possible for the Silver Gull, which is easy for gulls since they're very light coloured, while I needed to use a bit more for the sleeping Emu, I had this very close and sweet contact at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane. I can see in the Emu the influence that Louis Agassiz Fuertes has had on me...

Cacatua sanguinea. I wanted to go out to draw birds, but the weather has been a bit wild lately in Qeensland, so I opted to do some studio work today. Sleeping birds are attractive and inspiring. Maybe I've just started a new body of work completely dedicated to sleeping birds... sounds like a great idea!
