Shady Characters #2-Flamingos

Close up
Oil on 6x6 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to The Seeing Double Challenge at DPW posted by the extraordinary artist, Kimberly Santini .
She instructed: Using the same reference, create two paintings, each unique in scale (for example, a 5x7 and an 8x10). The paintings you create should be different compositionally - take advantage of cropping/modifying the scale/shift in focal point and build two separate pieces.

This 6x6 painting was made from the same reference that was used for Friday's post of the 5x7 flamingos. I think this one really accentuates the abstract qualities.
I have used this idea a few times in the past...making a painting from a close up crop of a previous painting.

  1. As usual, a beautiful job, Dean. I love that glorious light on the neck of the middle flamingo.
