Watercolour Flower Paintings
Watercolour Beach art
Watercolour painting 27cm x 37cm, unframed. I have depicted the above honeyeater in a summery scene, with background pastel colours hinting at the warm atmospheric conditions. Did you know that New Holland Honeyeaters were one of the first birds identified/classified and given a name back in early settlement days?
Little Brown Thornbill by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour painting. 21cm x 28cm and is unframed. Sitting by the beach, I observed this tiny bird flitting around a dead tree. I captured some of his flitting moments on my camera and discovered it was one of several Australian Thornbills. This is the Brown Thornbill and is found mainly in Eastern and southeastern Australia and even in Tasmania. They are very pretty and cute and would make a lovely addition to a bird-lovers home.
Robin in Native Frangipani by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour and gouache painting, 21cm x 28cm and is unframed. There's a favourite place overlooking the beach, where I see Robins and Wrens. This Eastern Yellow Robin came quite close so it was extra special. He is sitting in Native Frangipani which has white and yellow blooms and a lovely fragrance too.
Eastern Spinebill Amidst Grevillea is an original watercolour painting. 37cm x 27cm and is unframed. I have found a little spot close to home where I find many small birds. The Eastern Spinebill is one of these gorgeous little Australian native birds. It is also a species of honeyeaters. They are about 15cm long from beak to end of the tail, making them quite small. I watched a couple of Spinebills the other day as they made their way in and around the Grevillea hovering like Hummingbirds.
Little Blue Wren by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour-gouache painting. It measures 21cm x 28cm and is unframed. I have an undeniable love for little blue wrens, which are called Superb Wrens. I have thousands of photos and study them from all angles, and they never cease to amaze me with something new. I painted this one in gouache on an abstract watercolour background.
Eastern Rosella in Wattle by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour painting, 27cm x 37cm and is unframed. This is the third in the colourful Australian Native Bird series, and one of my favourites. Eastern Rosellas are so beautifully colourful and they blend and pop all at the same time when they're enjoying Wattle. #eastern rosella
Rainbow Lorikeet by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour painting; 27cm x 37cm and is unframed. This Rainbow Lorikeet is the first in a new series of Australian colourful native birds. We see them and hear their busy raucous but joyful chitter-chatter and so often, take them for granted. But imagine seeing them for the first time, they would stay in your mind as a miracle forever!
Little Corella by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour and gouache painting. It measures 27cm x 37cm and is unframed. Last but not least in this bird series is the Little Corella. The most playful bird I know. They are cheeky noisy and can congregate in enormous groups. Their playfulness is unlimited, as they play with each other, or hang by their beaks off small branches, or as they fall off something only to pick themselves up again to play yet again.
Grey Butcherbird by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour and gouache painting. It measures 27cm x 37cm and is unframed. The Grey Butcherbird is the 5th painting in this current bird series. They get their name from their rather butchery style of empaling their catch on a branch or twig, but that's nature. On the flip side, they have a delightful song and mimic other birds as well making their song melodically versatile.
Singing Maggie by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour and gouache painting. It measures 27cm x 37cm and is unframed. Singing Maggie is an Australian Magpie with a very familiar and beautiful warbling song. This is the fourth painting in this current series of Australian Native Birds.
"Putting His Best Foot Forward - Sulphur Crested Cockatoo is the third in the series of six paintings of neutral coloured Australian Birds all on varied blue/umber backgrounds. The blue represents freedom in the sky and the umber, coming back down to Earth. 27cm x 37cm
