Artist's Description

The Admiral by REK continues his finely detailed photo realistic approach to avian artwork. This recent 2020 piece features a wild red tailed black cockatoo captured by Australian wildlife photographer Jenny Leith .
Set against a dramatic graduated backdrop of backdrops of inky blues - the subject is the standout against the moody monochromatic composition. This piece is composed using a photo realistic approach with elements such the beak, eye and wrinkled skin containing multiple layers of glazing to create ultra-lifelike depth while the softness and interplay of light and shadow. The feathers are composed using a broad range of colours to recreate the iridescent shine, this time using a palate or mauve and electric blue.
