Rakiraki in Flight

65 x 50cm
Acrylic on  plywood

Rakiraki in flight is cut out of plywood and painted with acrylic paint. It floats out from the wall approx 2cm which gives the painting a greater sense of movement and an interesting shadow. When creating this painting I was inspired by our beautiful New Zealand bird, the Rakiraki (Duck). I love the idea of capturing this single moment in the flight, like a photograph, but in painting form.

This painting is for internal hanging only.
