"The Royals" is an oil painting of a pair of King Parrots where the male king parrot is trying to impress the female. I had this composition in mind but it took me almost a year to get the references that could do justice to my composition. Female King Parrot was photographed at Wyberba (near Girraween National Park) and male was photographed at Mt Cootha, Brisbane. Got the references for the tree when I was out at Wyberba gathering references. The story finally came together in the form of this painting.
This painting has won an award for "Best Feature Animal" subject at the Brookfield Art Show 2021.
