New Holland and Gum Flowers by Nicola Cowie

A sweet New Holland Honeyeater is depicted perched in a gum tree with silver princess in flower. The bird and flower are larger than life and and stylized to allow space for the watercolour washes to become the focus with their areas of granulation and puddles of colour created in the drying process.

Painted with layered washes of watercolour and finished with intricate pen and ink linework which makes the painting look like stained glass.
