More Flamingos

Carrying on from last weeks post, I wanted to share some more flamingo prints. Last October I shared a series of flamingos that I created using an impasto technique. This particular series uses an abstract watercolor technique with the same ink pen drawings of a flamingo as an overlay on the abstract watercolor background. 

To create the watercolor background, I used (digital) a brush that creates an almost airbrushed look with a variety of colors. Then using an ink pen “brush”, I drew the flamingos on top of the colorful background.

(On a personal note, I wanted to thank everyone that responded with support and prayers on the passing of my father. My wife and I spent a week in Cedar Rapids, Iowa along with siblings, nieces, nephews and our three girls and their husbands celebrating his life. The service was incredible with the four of us siblings each speaking with what he meant to us as a father. I come from a large family and it was awesome to see all of them come in from all over the country. It speaks volumes to who he was!!)

        Winter is lasting far too long nowadays. Everyone is complaining, even strangers. LOL I’m an only child and so was my mom. We have a VERY tiny family, so my life is incredibly different than yours. 🙂 I just ordered a flamingo flag for my front porch. Will put my flamingos out as soon as it’s warm enough. They are so much fun.

    What fun! I love your colourful flamingos! And it interests me that you ‘sprayed’ the colours first and then drew the flamingos — I would have done the opposite. Very cool to see how your creative mind works!

    It sounds like the celebration of life was beautiful, Kirt. It must mean a lot to know your father was loved by many. The flamingos are so dynamic, wow!
