Pretty in Pink Flamingos

Watercolor 11x15
I had loads of fun painting these bright, colorful flamingos. I used alot of negative painting to define the birds and trees, letting the shapes overlap to create a dynamic composition. When our kids were in high school it was popular to 'flock' someones house on their birthday. They would wake up to bright, pink plastic flamingos all over their yard - a big surprise and the kids had a blast sneaking over to do it early in the morning.
