skimmer family


Here they are, at water's edge. ( I really liked the wet sand and it's reflections. ) One of the chicks was a bit older, and so was trying out just one wing.
This is just a little 5" x 7", so I didn't have room to fit the other parent, not being a miniature painter by any means. Using a small brush, in fact, runs against my nature. But I do have some larger canvases ready, so stay tuned. I'll get the whole family portrait eventually.
Cheers, Susan

The reflections of the skimmers on the wet sand is beautiful, and I love how you captured the curiosity of the baby trying out his wings! Enchanting! h
