The original of this piece was a big A1. Painted on thick watercolour paper using gesso, acrylic, ink and gouache. The pattern in the background has been inspired by the seed and flowers of the white gum tree.
The Forty-spotted Pardalote (Pardalotus quadragintus) is a tiny bird and by far the rarest pardalote, being confined to a few colonies in the south-east corner of Tasmania, mainly on Maria Island and Bruny Island. It now occurs in only a few small areas of dry forest that contain Eucalyptus viminalis (white gum) trees, on which it is exclusively dependent.
