Flamingo

Animals, creativity, My paintings, My Sketch Book

I woke up this morning with the urge to paint a flamingo. I thought about it for a while, and I started playing with my watercolours. Bird number 1 came about (the one on the left, probably not an early bird by the looks of him).

I thought I’d try again, and bird number 2 turned up, right next to number 1.

He looks a bit sorry for himself. I suspect he finds bird number 1’s stare a bit too intense…

I closed my eyes and tried to think about flamingos… About the fact that I thought for years that the name of the band Pink Floyd meant Pink Flamingos – Which I suspect is the case for a lot of French people.

A flamingo…. Hmmmm.

When and where did I see one?
