This painting was the overall winner of the Swarovski ‘Bird Artist of the Year’ award 2002 – (Birdwatch magazine).
I sketched out the leaf litter and forest floor for this painting during a trip to Thailand in 2001. Garnet Pitta is a beautiful bird but can be difficult to find. If you are very lucky sometimes you can get close views of these birds as they hops around the forest floor or perch in low vegetation. I have seen Garnet Pitta in Taman Negara, National Park, Malaysia.
