" Dancing Light" White Ibis oil 24 x 60



It seems like ages since I posted a studio painting. This Large oil shows white ibis in flight. They are Florida waterbirds, though I saw these in Costa Rica. I haven't come up with a title yet. I'm pleased to have finished a larger painting ,but of course ,now I have to build a bloody great frame... oh dear. I will frame it the same as my recent Great Egret in flight.The rather ugly blobs at the bottom of the painting under the lead bird just mean I have to clean my camera lens... sorry about that.

I really love this - the lighting is great and I particularly like the light and then dark background at the top - really nice.
