About the piece:
“I had always wanted to try my hand at painting feathers, and the stunningly vibrant colours of the Scarlet Macaw seemed the perfect opportunity. Additionally, since I am typically a pet portrait artist and only recently branching out into wildlife art, it gave me the opportunity to explore these animals, natural behaviours in the wild which is new for me to capture in my paintings and adds on extra layer of excitement. Unfortunately, due to deforestation and the exotic animal trade, more countries are starting to consider these beautiful birds as endangered.”
