Male and Female Red Tail Black Cockatoo Diptych

Susan Hood

Oil on canvas

I have always had a fascination for nature and wildlife and birds seem to feature heavily in my work. Red Tail Black Cockatoo’s would be one of my favourite birds and I have painted them many times. The flash of colours as they take off and come in to land is spectacular and I like to show this In my paintings. They are long lived and pair for life so in this Diptych, even though they are separate paintings, they are still paired. Unfortunately due to the destruction of their habitat they are on now on the endangered list.
