Water birds 36 x 21 oil


This shows my painting , about half finished. I decided to leave out the white Ibis and go for a long thin composition. It's so nice to be painting birds again. I'll post the finished painting in a couple of days(hopefully). Top to bottom..... great egret, roseate spoonbill, snowy egret, juvenile roseate spoonbill.
