Oil on canvas board 14" x 20"

Completed December 2016.

The inspiration arose out of a visit to the Wangaratta Wetlands, NE Victoria after heavy rains.

The Australian white ibis' (Threskiornis Moluccaswingspan measures over a metre wide, so they're quite impressive. During the mating season, the normally rosy pink flesh under the wing turns a bright crimson red, and this colour can be repeated in the skin pigmentation at the back of the head.
