A good perch (2018)
Acrylic on canvas, framed, 1.05m x 1.05m x 6cm
Painted from a photo of a spiny cheeked honey eater by R.Faulkner, Moonbi NSW.
The honeyeaters come to the grevillea outside my loungeroom window each day, a number of different types, but I can never get a good photo, they are quick and not bold enough to hang around when they see me approaching the window. But Bob captured a beauty. A telephoto lens is the key I believe. I loved painting this handsome fellow.
