I enjoyed the colors of the Flamingos at Lake Nakuru NP, Kenya, on October 31, 2019. Here are some feeding in the shallow alkaline water along the shores. The small bird is a Wood Sandpiper. Won an Award of Merit in the WASH Member Show, "Awash with Color," April 7-26, 2020.
The judge, Carolyn Lord, said about the painting, "What I like about these flamingos is the standing in the water... The transition from top to bottom where the water reflects sky, and then it comes toward us -- we're looking through the water to see the mud flat. It all helps convey a sense of space. The artist took time on the legs and the slhouette reflection of the legs to make the legs solid and the reflection below broken."
