Finally the completed painting! Sorry it took so long, I have been travelling for months and also dealing with family business overseas which took a lot of time. Work in the studio had seriously slowed due to all this and other interruptions so that it was only yesterday that I managed to complete the final touches to the Cassowary, There are though a few things that I might go back and work on though. I'm not completely satisfied with the background color for example - I was hoping for something a little less brown so may have to repaint this area. Some other details may have to be brought out a little too, otherwise I'm quite happy with it - such a strange-looking bird though.
I'll get to some other paintings that I have completed and also mention of my travels in following posts.
