The Western Rosella is truly unique to the south-western corner of Western Australia. They are the smallest of the rosella species and the only rosella with yellow cheek patches the other species have white and blue patches.
The Visitor is a male Western Rosella displaying mostly red head, neck and underbody plumage where as the female and juvenile colouring is a mottled green.
I am besotted by the beauty and variations of colours these birds display. The Visitor is the first of a series of Rosella paintings I have painted of these beautiful, unique Australian birds. My mission is to capture the complete species in oils.
Thank you to fabulous wildlife photographer Judy Walker for graciously providing the reference photo used as inspiration for this oil painting.
