Notes on a Kookaburra


I think there’s a series in the making here- painted field studies, notes and all. This one’s complete, titled Notes on a Kookaburra. A satisfying study in emphasizing what’s important and leaving out what’s not, and a nice way of putting all those hundreds of field sketches clogging up my studio shelves to good use. This is a painted record of the moment in time when I put my binoculars on the bird and a pencil on the paper, and not a whole lot more than that. It is acrylic on 1/4″ board and measures 10×12. I’ll try another one soon, there’s plenty of raw material over here. Stay tuned.
