Finalist 2023 – The Holmes Prize for Excellence in Realistic Australian Bird Art.
The Rainbow Lorikeet is as vibrant in spirit as it is in colour.
Should a Rainbow Lorikeet fly into your life, be ready for some humour. There is nothing shy about these beautiful birds they are renowned not only for their vivid variegated plumage but also their boisterous chatter and silly play.
Rainbow Lorikeets prefer landing in a space lush with fruit and flowering trees. Here they sip on the plants nectar as you might consume a fine wine, bringing all the sweet things to life.
“Waratah” is an oil painting depicting a pair of beautiful Lorikeets sitting on one of Australia’s most iconic flowers, the floral emblem for New South Wales – truly a sight to behold.
Thank you to bird life photographer David C. Simon for graciously providing the reference photo used as inspiration for this oil painting.
