BIRDS OF PARADISE

Hummingbirds and parrots like jewels in the light, against the tropical green of the huge trees

The Amazon rainforest , covering much of northwestern Brazil and extending into Colombia, Peru and other South American countries, is the world’s largest tropical rainforest famed for its biodiversity and beauty of the wildlife. Hummingbirds and parrots of spectacular beauty ,eagles and macaws live under the canopy of huge trees with spiders, sloths, and frogs and insects all unique to this last refuge of unique species

Using my layering of resin to create a base of varying textures of gold leaf, silver, inks as a background. Then the wildlife artist Maria Heskins painted these fabulous exotic birds  on top of my artwork in perfect detail in gouache with colours such as ruby reds, azure blue, bright orange, crimsons, yellow and emerald greens. I then sandpapered some of her details off to make the birds blend into my abstract background to spectacular effect. Hints of a wing in the light or a set of feathers hidden in a tree is the aim.
