Finished them.

Finished my 'fighting johnnyrooks' painting, here it is with the 'angry johnnyrook':



Not being much of a photographer both of these are composed from multiple reference photos, recently I got some decent shots of a johnnyrook on the wing which I'd not managed before. Might do a third picture in this set based on this photo:


Could be fun.

  1. Fierce birds! googled the johnny rook and found this National Geographic video. I think you captured their scrappy nature.

  2. Thanks for that Artscapes. I remember seeing that video when it was first released, "Devil Birds" very melodramatic title but some fantastic footage, love it when their camp is destroyed by the young johnnyrooks.
