Golden Conures Painting


‘Preen Queens’  – deep edge oil painting

1 in stock


Golden conures painting in oils. An affectionate pair of golden yellow birds preen and play.

‘Preen Queens’ is the title of this artwork, the Queen of Bavaria conure being another name for these vibrant yellow birds.  I met this delightful pair of conures at Tropical Birdland  in Leicestershire where these birds live, preen and play. As I painted the feet I realised they were ‘holding hands’ with their claws entwined. So sweet!

The birds are painted with detail but the more abstract background is inspired by aviary bars casting mauve shadows and golden reflections on their enclosure walls.

Golden conures classified as ‘vulnerable’ in their natural habitat, the Amazon basin. Read more about golden conures, and conservation projects by the World Parrot Trust to help protect them, here
