Painting the flamingos' leg reflections for Lesson No. 21
I mixed my Geranium with some Ultramarine Blue for a dark pink and filled in the legs. Remember to keep them a bit squiggly to coincide with the water ripples you have made. Soften the edges into the greens and add a slightly lighter pink for a bit of highlight. I have broken the front leg up towards the bottom and tapered it off, as it is looking a bit too long on my board. One more lesson of fiddling around and tidying up and we're done!
