White-faced Ibis 1

White-faced Ibis. This is another dark bird at a distance, but oh, SO many colors when you a good close look. I can’t wait to use those pinks, purples, deep greens and flashes of gold on this one. Try as I did however, there is no way to map the Fibonacci over this composition, but it sure looked like it for a while… I did a portrait of this species about three years ago, just before my show. I’m not looking at that portrait now, but when I’m done, it will be interesting to see if I’ve progressed.
