Today I revisited another of my Chemo Critters, this time is my blue beaked flamingo “Pinky”. Above you can see the original pencil sketch from my sketch pad, I did this during an intense chemo therapy session. You can see the progression from sketch to colored pencil on blue paper to the final digital coloring. The cattails in the background are from a photo I took on Fir Island. I always make an attempt to use only my own materials and content to produce these. I hope you enjoy.
I do love Chrysanthemums and this one is a really nice maroon and yellow variety. We bought it for Thanksgiving. I just stuck it in the front window and snapped a couple of shots this morning.
