About this artwork
Twilight Cockatoos by Kate Graham. A forest scene in thick textured paint in coloured bands including purple, blue and green, and highlights of striking orange and yellow. Colours depict the glow of twilight. Add the flock of cheeky cockatoos that occupy the canvas with naive frivolity, this piece becomes a whimsical celebration of nature. Style is loose and painterly, giving it a textured charm that matches the naivety of the subject matter. Inspired by the colour field paintings of last century, the colour scheme becomes not only the background to the trees, but an important feature of the painting. This painting would make a great addition to any home, office, nursery, living room or bedroom, a real conversation piece. Painted on quality canvas, hooks and wire on back so ready to hang. Sides also painted in a continuance of the composition, so no need to frame.
