Steve Morvell Australian Wildlife Artist Australian Kestrel  Pastel Painting
Watching Post - Australian Kestrel (2004) 38 x 62 cm.
Subject: Male Australian kestrel perching on weathered fence.

Medium: Pastel - drawing Painting on acid free paper
Description: Scrubby desert country offers few suitable perches to a male Australian Kestrel watching for prey. An old post and rail fence dating back to early white settlement offers one such place for this tiny raptor. Time and weather have roughened the timber and faded the colours to blend with the saltbush scrub making it seem a natuarl part of the timeless landscape. Birds of prey are opportunists and the Australian kestrel is supremely adaptable to the diverse Aussie habitat.
