Sunbird & Flowers, Cape Town.
The strong colours and striking geometric patterns of the Bird of Paradise plant and flowers where this Southern Double-collared Sunbird flitted while feeding was an absorbing subject to paint. Getting a decent shot of this fast-moving bird in Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Cape Town was also quite a challenge as they suck the nectar from flowers while hovering on the wing and just don't seem to keep still.
This oil painting is embellished with gold and silver acrylic in the background.
Painted using alla prima technique.
The 100% pure cotton stretched canvas has been gesso primed and the painting lightly varnished with Winsor & Newton Picture Varnish.
The sides are painted a soft yellow and the work can be hung unframed. Picture hanging fittings are in place.
