Pink Flamingo

Pink Flamingo Watercolor 8×10

Happy #DrawABirdDay!

On the 8th day of every month, many of my fellow artistic blogging friends and I enjoy sharing our drawings and paintings of birds.  Thanks Laura at CreateArtEveryDay for hosting!

I painted this pink flamingo a week or so ago and have been saving it to share for today.  I have to admit, I think this is my favorite watercolor painting I’ve done to date.

And I have to thank Laura again for calling my attention to a tutorial on the Artist Network done by one of my favorite watercolor artists, Jean Haines, who inspired this flamingo.

I just couldn’t wait to see what it looked like framed.  Doesn’t it make such a difference to see it matted and framed?

I also thought it would make beautiful note cards, so I printed some up for our McKinneyX2Designs Etsy shop.

I love pink….
I love birds….
I love watercolor…
So creating this painting was pure joy for me.

Wishing you a day filled with joy and love and moments to cherish!

Cheers & Hugs,

  1. Wow what a beautiful flamingo. The underdrawing beautifully done, great proportions and love those colors and the feathery feel of this one. Nice job and you are so right about the framing and matting, just really sets it off particularly against the pink! Well done, my friend! Jean Haines is amazing, is she not? And so are you, Artistanistasistah! 💕💛💕

      • It was unusual to have as pets, let’s just say they had a large property…the baby was pretty peculiar looking, and made funny noises, like little beeps. I am sure it was out with the flock very soon, but needed regular feeding, and I can’t remember why it was inside, if it was incubator hatched, or the mother rejected it?

  3. I love your flamingo painting and agree how wonderful it looks framed. Your website makes me smile. Thank you for sharing your life and wonderful talents with us. May God continue to send you blessings each and every day.


  4. I always like your paintings of birds, but there is something about this flamingo that looks so noble, and almost powerful! I love it! That’s not something I usually think of when I see a flamingo, which means now I’m going to be seeing them in a whole new way.
