Featuring a few Australian birds

A little while ago I had the pleasure of painting this commission of my cousin and her fiancé, who both studied birds in Australia, commissioned by my other cousin, Marjolein, as a gift. Rosellas are Leonie and Raoul’s particular area of expertise, but I couldn’t help going all out researching and adding Australian birds until the drawing was packed with them – they’re just too amazing! I love looking up birds, time and again I just get swept away with wonder at their shapes and colours.Leonie and Raoul for blog

As a little extra gift I made these little ink and watercolour bonus images below; one for Leonie and Raoul with rosellas and fairy wrens, and one for tea-expert Marjolein – thanks so much again for this sweet commission!

    Hehehe. The bird puns ^_^
    Thanks again Bea. This is wonderful and will be framed and hung (probably near some Gould prints of Australian birds) on a wall once we find a place to live. Admittedly that might be a while, but hey, dreamers dream. xx
