Check out my newly published ibook "How to Oil Paint a Cockatoo". There are over 100 beautiful photos with corresponding advice, tips and techniques used to explain how we painted this.
The Australian Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo is a mischievous, very noisy and at the same time lovable bird. Sadly, my Freddy died last year so I will be keeping this painting in her memory. I aim to do more paintings of these birds as it was such fun.
This book is aimed at those who can paint, but written so that a beginner could enjoy too. You can find it in your iTunes store or click on the link in my blog.

I've started to bring in a bit of interest with a middle foreground of frangipanis. These have a little more structure, yet I have brushed them in so that they do not compete with the focal point and star of the painting - Sophie!
