Vera Hemkes - Australia ‘Pardalote’

Waterless lithograph and chine colle. I chose an image of a pardalote for my work. The pardalote is unique in that it is a tiny fast flying bush bird of extraordinary beauty its jewel-like markings are very fine and provide successful camouflage. It is also unusual in that its nest is a burrow in a bank, but sometimes found in sheds or old carpets.
