Legendary wildlife filmmaker Sir David Attenborough viewed William T Cooper as ‘‘Australia’s greatest living scientific painter of birds,’’ adding, ‘‘he is possibly the best in the world.’’

Cooper spent a great deal of time in the field observing birds in the wild before capturing them in lively sketches brought to life in his studio. In this exhibition the focus is on his book illustrations with a selection of original watercolour paintings from the publications Parrots of the World and Pigeons and Doves of Australia.

In 2016 award winning artist Davida Allen donated three paintings to the Mackay Regional Council Art Collection. Allen is known for her distinctive style of painting where she eschews brushes for her fingers. While other methods of painting allow for changes to be made, Allen’s technique disallows reform, to do so would destroy the immediacy of the image. An intensely personal painter, her subjects in this case are what she sees when walking near her home in South East Queensland or her studio in Zilzie.

Legendary wildlife filmmaker Sir David Attenborough viewed William T Cooper as ‘‘Australia’s greatest living scientific painter of birds,’’ adding, ‘‘he is possibly the best in the world.’’

Cooper spent a great deal of time in the field observing birds in the wild before capturing them in lively sketches brought to life in his studio. In this exhibition the focus is on his book illustrations with a selection of original watercolour paintings from the publications Parrots of the World and Pigeons and Doves of Australia.

The idea revolves around conversations and collaborations with the artist as he or she is supported by members of the local community to complete the work.

In 2016 award winning artist Davida Allen donated three paintings to the Mackay Regional Council Art Collection. Allen is known for her distinctive style of painting where she eschews brushes for her fingers. While other methods of painting allow for changes to be made, Allen’s technique disallows reform, to do so would destroy the immediacy of the image. An intensely personal painter, her subjects in this case are what she sees when walking near her home in South East Queensland or her studio in Zilzie.
