Pink Flamingos for PPF

My word for this year is strive and I think I need to be doing a little more of that. I was determined to at least start a painting this week. Not in my journal or  in a sketchbook, but on canvas. One of the photos (courtesy of mbeckett)  for the WDE over at was pink flamingos and I was enticed by their gracefully curving necks. I’m almost finished. Maybe a bit more work in the background and I have to paint the edges since it is a gallery wrapped canvas. This is 20″ by 10″, oils. Which means I can play along with Paint Party Friday this week! I’ve been missing the party too much, lately.

    this is looking absolutely glorious… feathers have always done my head in and you are just cruising through them making them look easy… I love the texture and the atmosphere… and of course the colour is perfect… very cool stuff…xx

    Melisa, your flamingos are wonderful. I love the way you have captured the gracefulness against the strong background. Just gorgeous.

    Your flamingo rocks! Great job. I used to have a large plastic one in the yard. Don’t know what happened to it though. Nice work. Happy PPF!
