My thanks to Isabel Morelli for the reference photograph. "Don't ruffle my feathers"! one blue and yellow macaw seems to be saying to the other in this pencil painting by Elaine Jones. The blue and yellow, or blue and gold macaw, ara ararauna, is native to tropical South American woodland and can grow to 30-34 inches and a weight of 2 or 3 pounds. These large, long-lived members of the parrot family are widespread in much of South America and are popular as pets because of their brilliant plumage, intelligence and ability to talk. In the wild they nest in dead palm trees and pairs usually mate for life, often reaching an age of 30-35 years. This original pencil painting is presented in a cream mount/matte ready for framing. (Image size approx. 29cm x 21cm" - external size 35cm x 28cm)
I love this little painting! The colours are so vibrant in "real Life" I even managed to get some texture in it making it look like there are pieces flying off a comet. I have used some metallic paint in parts and it really catches the light.. Turquoise blue,yellow, orange merge with the black paint. Some lovely effects on there that my camera isnt picking up.. Postage is free in Mainland UK Varnished and ready to hang.NOW SOLD

Painting is signed on the back. Painted with St. Petersburg White Nights Watercolour tubes which are single pigments of the highest quality and contain honey and gum Arabic. HIDDEN DEPTHS Like a gateway to another galaxy, we all have hidden depths; sometimes theyâre so hidden, we havenât found them yet! like a diver in the depths of the ocean, oa black hole in the sky, we can find them deep within us, if weâre quiet and we try.
The Peacock can be associated with the Phoenix, which is a perfect reminder that you can rise again with whatever you have been through. This beautiful bird also signifies internal and external qualities that we sometimes need to be reminded of. The Fleur-de-lis symbol depicts the Lily flower and translated to English, symbolises life, light and perfection.
