inspiration- the many shades of flamingo pink

flamingo
I go to to zoo every couple of weeks to look for color and inspiration and I NEVER seem to get tired of the flamingos. It is truly amazing how many different shades of flamingo pink there actually is!

Oh. I want a pink feather. How neat is that! I just realized that I have never seen a pink feather in the flesh up in cold, cold Maine. Love the pic of the sleeping bird. Thanks for the lovely pictures.

I grew up going to "Zoo Atlanta" and always left inspired. Although im a guy, im confident in my masculinity, and can say that pink is one of my favorite colors. You'll often see it in my art. Thanks for sharing the shades. Great post.

I love the zoo-wish there was one near me. Did you pick up that beautiful pink feather?

Yesterday at the Phoenix Zoo we noted that the flamingoes are pretty white with just the slightest pink under-hue. I think they need to get a shipment of some of the shrimp these guys are eating! (And I did almost type "shrimpment", in case anyone wanted to know.)

Just left a comment on your peacock bag post too (so wonderful!) and had to leave a comment here too. I am so inspired as to how you get inspired by the things you see at the zoo.....
Can I ask what program you used to get the colour palette from the photo? If you could let me know, I'd be grateful! Thanks in advance!

I want to go home & play in my paint after seeing your lovely photos... thanks so much for the inspiration!

I had the same question as favouriteworkofart, what program do you use to generate the color palette? As a newbie and student in your online Sketchbook Delight course (LOVE) I think it might help me when choosing colors to add to my sketches.

Love this palette! May have to do something with it, myself. Thanks for the inspiration, Alisa!

Wow, what a darling of colors.
In the Ebro Delta in Spain, we have a wild flamingo colony, but its color is softer.
A greeting.

Have you watched the documentary "Crimson Wing"? I highly recommend it. Fascinating story of how they become pink.
