Canada Geese

18 x 24

The water was choppy and a little wind-disturbed, but the light was bright as the birds glided quietly past me. Their sunlit white feathers were oddly reflected in the water, in the dip here and on the crest there.

I used a few of my new Crumble Colors: in the midtones on the feathers and in the lights on the birds. In places it seemed like I got a streak of unwelcome yellow, but overall I liked the results and look forward to using them in less subtle ways with my next painting.
