Don't be fooled by this birds name: The 'Lesser Flamingo' is a vivid, gaudy, gorgeous and intriguing bird. I loved capturing these flamingoes as they basked in ankle-deep muddy water at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. Streaks of hot pink, upside-down beaks and the classic one-footed stance, reflected in the muddy green water made them a beautiful sight to capture.
Lots more sketches from nature, birds, animals flora and fauna in this section of my store:
This is a print of my original sketch done with watercolor, pen and ink. The print is designed to float in a standard frame. Image#2 is the complete image ( Image #1 is a closeup) Image #3 shows how it would look in a frame. Printed on Archival Fine Art Paper. The colors of the actual print are richer and more vibrant than this web image. Each print is signed and carefully packed and shipped.
All my sketches are done on-site, from direct observation. The print you will receive is a high-resolution scan of the original and will show all it's natural imperfections (the blot of an inked-in line, a faintly drawn pencil sketch under the watercolor), all integral to the process. If you are interested in a different size, just ask!
