Flamingos with Acrylics

I played with some different shades of green to complete the reeds in this picture of flamingos. The original artist, Clive, has several tutorial videos on YouTube. Here is the link for painting the flamingos.

Of course mine does not look like his, but it is a beginning for me. I always think I can paint something right over it later. One tip I learned from him was to mix the base layer with Gesso, it really covers much better.

  1. I love everything about this...the reeds and background, the pink flamingos and the water-especially the reflections in the water. :) Very nice job!
