WDE 9th Aug ‘Kookaburra’

Hi everyone, Shane thank you for hosting and the great photos this week. I must apologise. It’s not finished. I’ve come down with a an annoying cold. It’s altered my perception. Somewhat.

I’m hoping I can work on it some more tomorrow. It’s mostly acrylic with touches of coloured pencil on Mont Marte canvas pad A4. I have to admit I’d never seen a Kookaburra with light coloured eyes. That’s what caught my attention.

ThAnks for looking in advanced.
Sandy.

Maybe needs a bit more on the tail but It’s very painterly and captures the different textures on beak, eye and feathers really well. Super colours.
