The Regent Bowerbird.

Here is some beautiful Australian wild life - The Regent Bowerbird. I have painted the male species in it's mature and immature form. These guys are found in rainforest areas from central NSW up to QLD. Acrylic medium on 50cm x 40cm canvas.


  1. Hello Melanie J Froud , the recent conduct of my busy, do not have access to your blog, I enjoy your painting, I wish you a healthy and happy!

  2. You have a myriad of painting talents Melanie - and birdlife is no exception!

  3. Hi,

    You have some great colours here (green can be tricky) and a realistic depth.
    This reminds me the paintings of a known artist who's name I can't remember.

    Kind regards,


  4. Beautiful colors on this piece! It's fantastic. Very nice work.
