A Series?

I've read that if you save 3 or more of any one thing it's called a collection.
Now that I've just finished my third Flamingo painting I'll call it a series ... I've lived in Florida and never painted them before.
This is my latest one, and the other 2 are somewhere below.
 Although I've seen many in person, this  one was a photo from Wet Canvas.  
It will fit in an 18x24" frame, done on Arches 140lb. c/p  paper. I've used a mix of brown madder, new gamboge, rose madder . Background was mostly from Indigo,  touch of alizarin, and new gamboge, but very little water.  BJ

  1. I really like your flamingos...this one is such a beautiful coral color. One of highlights of visiting FLorida for sure....thanks for taking me there in the middle of a snowy winter.

  2. It's interesting what you say about "3 or more". In that case, I have a 'collection' of rubbish watercolours ... or should I call them a 'series'? lol.

    This painting is the best of your Flamingo series in my opinion. I love the colours and the feather texture is superb. Fabulous work as always. ;)

  8. Stunning piece, BJ! I envy all birds' ability to get comfortable just within themselves. I want to cuddle up next to this big bird!

  10. Gorgeous, Barbara. I think you have a great series going and I look forward to seeing new additions!! Hope all is well -- terribly busy here - being President of our large art society is taking way more time than I had hoped.
