The Couple


This watercolor is based on a photo by my friend Fred Walsh who is a brilliant wildlife photographer and an avid bird enthusiast. Those are Great Egrets and you can see the original picture here. I loved this photo very much and tried to give it another dimension. Thanks Fred, for letting me use this image.
Watercolor 16"x12"

  4. They make a cute couple Arti, the way they both bent their necks in a similar fashion to look curiously at something makes them cuter, you did really well!
