“Mitch” Major Mitchell painted in oils 40cm x 50cm.

 

Dressed in salmon pink these magnificent cockatoos possess a crown befitting a king.

 

” Mich” the Major Mitchell now resides on the walls of a Californian bird life art  collector who’s passion is cockatoos.  It  is lovely to share Australian birds in painted form.

 

To me birds are one of natures gifts belonging in their natural habitat where we can  cherish and protect them for generations to come.

 

Thank you wildlife photographer Keith Lightbody for graciously providing the reference photo for my interpretation.
