Parrot Garden

'Parrot Garden' was inspired by my love for macaw parrots. I imagined a beautiful garden that is filled with the scent of exotic flowers, where the air is fresh and where you can find dew droplets on leaves. 'Parrot Garden' is a place where many new feathered friends can be made.

The background for this piece was inspired by the 17th century Dutch painter Jan van Huysum. When painting 'Parrot Garden', I wanted to re-create the interesting lighting effects and richness of detail that old 17th century still life paintings are known for.

The original painting was painted with oils on a Fredrix Belgian linen canvas board. Size 19x24cm.
