ORIGINAL pastel painting, 26 x 17 inches. "The young whipbird" (Psophodes olivaceus). Media: Sennelier artists’ soft pastels, Schmincke artists’ soft pastels and Artists’ Spectrum soft pastels. Support: AS Colourfix paper. Framed behind glass. Normally whipbirds are shy and difficult to photograph, but this young bird in Lamington National Park was very approachable. In fact, it was quite ready to approach us, and we found it difficult to remain far enough away to take photos.
