Grace the Glossy Black-Cockatoo is painted on a yellow background a bit different to my normal solid coloured back grounds, with this one I have blended in different tones and I am happy with the effect it has given to the painting.

The Glossy Black-Cockatoo is the smallest of the five black-cockatoos. Adult females have extensive yellow patches on the head and neck and the tail panels tend to be more orange-red with black bars, but may become less barred and more red with age. Some adult males have a few yellow feathers on the head and the males' tail panels tend to be bright red. Young birds resemble adult males but have yellow spotted or streaked breasts, bellies and flanks, with some yellow spots on cheeks and sides of head. Glossy Black-Cockatoos are strongly associated with casuarina stands in wet forests.

Please note Grace is not framed as pictured in the insitu photo's, but she is ready to hang.
