Tawny Frogmouths – SOLD


Tawny Frogmouths Original Fumage and watercolour on 425gsm cellulose archival paper 39cm x 57cm – SOLD

Maegan’s Inspiration: ”Tawny Frogmouths have been one of the most elusive birds for me to photograph! I see them all the time while driving at night but never have my camera on me… it’s like they know when I’m not prepared. So when I saw Robert’s photograph of these two it really stood out to me, as if the two little mischief makers had finally been caught! I used a bit of watercolour on their eye’s to bring out the amber hues but used the scorch through the tree branch and gumnuts. The older gumnut shells were to mark a sort of passage of time since I’ve been asked to do Frogmouths for years and years now, so they’re finally here. Thanks to Robert Pyne Photography for the reference image”.
