9.27.2010>>> I am going to paint more birds that I saw @ Jungle Gardens in Sarasota, Florida. 
This time a flamingo and a heron. 2 paintings @ once! Oh my!

*** I am going to be making a bunch of smaller paintings for a while to prepare for the 
Woodlands Waterway Art Festival that I am going to have a booth @ in April 2011!


This is the background for my flamingo painting.  It is the reflection of palm trees!


I added more contrast to the shadows today by adding a dark brown and a green.


I added the flamingo! Pause for lunch...


After lunch I worked on the background.  I added more grey, white and blue.  I also worked on blurring the edges of the reflections as well as adding in the water droplet waves.


I added some highlights on the flamingo's neck and changed some of the dark red areas a bit.
