Galah Circus

Galah Circus

Galahs are birds that have fun. Give a group of them a telegraph wire to play on and they will take full advantage of it, sliding up and down, flipping over and teasing one another. This is a miniature concertina book of galahs playing on a wire. The drawings were made in liquid pencil using a brush, then intensified with graphite pencil and finished off with coloured pencil and acrylic paint.

I draw, I paint, I am a printmaker. Always searching for the interesting detail in the world around me.

    1. Thank you Karen! I really enjoy your drawings (thought I had clicked follow, but find I haven’t yet!). Like you, botanical subjects are a something I gravitate to. I sketch too, but only when I am travelling, so will add a sketch page to the blog soon.
