3 Flamingos and their reflections
from Safari West
I'm planning on simplifying this image a lot!
I'm editing out the reflections of all the green foliage and the upper bank.
This will make the image mostly blue and more tranquil vs chaotic.
We'll still have all the yummy darks and ripples, just not the madness of all the greens and yellows. I've been wanting to paint this for quite some time - can't wait to get started.
