That is lovely! Is it a portrait of one of your birds? Is it an Ecelectus?

That's great. Have you done pictures of that scale before? Do you draw it and keep checking from further away, or plot it out with measurements?

I am so impressed it is thought I am capable of painting such a masterpiece. :blush: Stick animals are more my artistic ability. :whistle:

The guy that painted it based it on photos he took and many trip back to Lucci's cage to check on the "real" thing. He did originally draw the outline, painted in the tail as black and the head as green and sprayed much of the rest. The detail was sprayed and painted. Many walks back to view from a distance but no measuring.

He has been a helper staying here with his girlfriend in their way travelling around NZ. Will be leaving tonight on the next leg of their trip leaving me with a lasting treasure of his time with us.
