This watercolor of Studio #1 is just one of the many in colorful Spanish Village Art Center, a part of Balboa Park. Spanish Village is a haven for art lovers visiting and living in San Diego and contains the work of hundreds of artists and many types of media.
I exhibit my art at Studio #26; you can see me there many Thursdays.

When I was teaching plein-air at the zoo, one of my students took some incredible photographs that captured the vibrant plumage, agile necks, and stilt-like legs of the pink flamingos at the San Diego Zoo. I used these photographs as source material for this painting. In watercolor it’s a challenge to get a dark, fully saturated background.
