Peaceful to Behold

Laughing Kookaburra (Dacelo novaeguineae)

Size 14 cm x 16 cm

Acrylic on Arches paper


Background references for this painting were completed while camping in Mount Kaputar National Park, New South Wales.

While I grew up listening to the raucous calls of the Blue-Winged Kookaburras in the Northern Territory, I have gradually developed an affection for the renowned laughter of their southern cousins.
