This was done for the WDE on WetCanvas from a photo reference by "changingpaths." Thanks for the great reference, Cyd. This is 7 x 10. The original reference had many flamingos, but my limit is one. Hope you are "in the pink" like this beautiful bird!

Beautiful work so such tiny space. I love the colors. I have some great photos of flamingos too from San Diego Zoo. Their colors are amazing. If I remember right it comes from what they eat, gives new meaning to your are what you eat!

Desiree - They say they are pink from all the shrimp they eat. Thanks!

This is superb Joan. I love the pink, especially the reflection and the sand and grass texture.

What is the WDE that you mention? I'm new to watercolor and this seems like a good way to learn. Especially if I judge from your paintings!
