Lovely. Great against the white background.

I like the way you allow the image of the crane to infer the presence of the background of sky meeting water.

Simple and elegant. I like the rainbow mix of colors you used for the crane's body.

Even the small ripple lines are done with controlled perfection.

Lana Gramlich said...

nothingprofound; Thanks. They're such beautifully colorful birds.

debra; Thank you. :)

JR; I think it's a matter of "practice makes perfect" in this case. I wasn't as precise with the ripples as I've been in the past. (Sometimes I find I'm too exacting about such things. I'm trying to be a bit "looser" when I paint.)

I like this.

We are having some delightful weather here today. I have been out for a brief period and sat in a chair and listened to the birds singing and the mother robin scolding her baby about going there or here. The hummingbird popped in on me and left before I could really get a good look. I find I can fall asleep at the drop of a hat and it feels so good to wake up and realize it is still daylight. Your flowers are beautiful. I have some open but not much variety yet.

He is exquisite. I like the way you've created the subtle waves in the water around him, they add remarkable texture but do not distract from his majesty.
