This pic on the left isn't very clear, but he's my galah, done in acrylics. Growing up in country South Australia we lived next door to a park with a huge population of cackling galahs. We used to delight in clapping our hands loudly to get them to disperse.
Next to him is my sulfur crested cockatoo. Being predominantly white, I had to do about 26 coats so you couldn't see the background underneath! Eye rolling stuff because in Joan's journal I did the background afterwards because I hadn't decided what to do - maybe next journal I'll get it right...
Then on to a bit of journalling. Interestingly, google tried to tell me that a group of cockatoos was known as a cockfest. I don't think so! Didn't think Rose would appreciate that in her journal, so I went with "There is nothing more Australian than the clatter of cockatoos and galahs in the bush!"
I hope you like this page Rose! I really enjoyed doing it!
