Fine art illustration of an American Flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber.)
The American Flamingo was completed on 12.5.2011. I had taken a quick snap of an American Flamingo at the Wildlife World Zoo in Litchfield, Arizona. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but as I was reviewing some of the images, I decided the pose might make a good drawing. From the time I rediscovered the photo and began the drawing was several years. Perhaps because I had drawn a Chilean Flamingo and considered them to be fairly close in appearance.
