Artwork details:
Original watercolour and ink artwork, ‘Banjo’, Buff-sided Robin

This little robin has a serious amount of spunk, with the unique cocking of its tail and the dramatic POP of the white feather highlights. Shannon thoroughly enjoyed capturing its striking appearance and evoking its constant twitchy movement.

Before starting an artwork Shannon researches her subject thoroughly to intimately know its habits, movements, personality and colouring to ensure she can capture it all in her artwork.
One of the bonuses of this research for her art collectors is that her research is then also combined into a summarised paragraph which becomes part of the Certificate of Authenticity, see below:

The Buff-sided Robin is endemic to northern Australia, from the Kimberly region of Western Australia to the north-west Queensland Gulf of Carpentaria. It is largely confined to humid habitats – sometimes in rainforest pockets or mangroves but they are widespread in vegetation along creeks and rivers, particularly those lined with Pandanus aquaticus, rarely venturing into adjacent drier and more open forest types. They occupy permanent territories in pairs or family groups of three or four. Fairly diverse in their feeding behaviour, they spend time on the ground or searching the tree trunks, but also sally for flying insects on occasions. A characteristic habit is that of cocking the tail and slowly lowering it, especially when alarmed. Buff-sided robin nests are located close to water in dense vegetation on the fork of a tree or shrub. Potential threats to populations of the buff-sided robin are related to the direct and indirect actions of humans, including atmospheric pollution leading to climate change, altered fire regimes, exotic ruminants, introduction of feral animals, removal of apex predators (dingo control), land clearing, agricultural and water resource development and weed invasion. The buff-sided robin IUCN Conservation Status: Least Concern. However, is listed as near threatened in the Northern Territory.
