woyww - a rose and a kookaburra



Underpainting of a rose with lots of ruffled petals sits on my desk this Wednesday.  Hopefully I will get some time this weekend to shift it from pink to deep burgundy.



The completed kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae).  He turned out to be a fine fellow sitting happily while I painted every little feather!

A lovely catch up with RosA today and now sitting here admiring all the texture 
goodies she has made.

Have a lovely woyww.

  4. Your Kookaburra certainly is a fine fellow sitting in the old gum tree, Sandra!! I love him and your rose is looking beautiful. I have a stamp that you can make look like that with layers, but I could never paint one, you are so talented.
    Hope life is good down under.
