The grass was Bamboo Green (PG36) with glazes of Permanent Yellow Light (PY154). I also glazed the lightest part of the bird's neck and back with this color.
The water was painted with mixes of the Bamboo Green, Cerulean Blue and Permanent Yellow Light.
I think I may do a series of flamingoes, or something of the like that lets me use more of these colors.
I used Silver Black Velvet Brushes Round size 6 and size 16.
This bird was done in the Global Art Materials Field Watercolor Artist Journal Hand Book, 7 by 10-Inch that I'm using for the '52 Weeks of Watercolour Birds'.
My reference photo came from the Morguefile archive.
