Three Graces... a work in progress

Three Graces...a work in progress
9"x12" oil on board

I met up with a couple other local plein air painters in Sarasota this morning to paint at Jungle Gardens. Someone had just fed the flamingos their breakfast so rather than bathing in the water they were all congregated on the walkway. I chose to paint a shady area of the pond and just kept my fingers crossed that some would wander my way... and as luck would have it, eventually 3 of them waded into the water for about 10 minutes, which was just long enough for me to capture them on my canvas!
A better close-up photo of the finished piece is yet to come...
(On a side not, this was my first painting experience that I had to contend with flamingos nipping at my butt while I worked!)
