I will try to do something more with the picture of the cabbage ( March Challenge).
This time something with flamingos.
This is just the first sketch I made. I hope to develop it more in the direction that you can recognise
flamingos in it. :'(

It looks like you are having fun with that cabbage, Dirk!
The flamingoes are developing well.
Looking forward to your end result.

Thanks Val,

It is very funny to experiment a bit. With this one I had no clear idea what is would become.
It certainly aren't flamengos.

 :think: Definitely no flamingos...  I'm getting more of an under the sea vibe. Stingray, jellyfish, swordfish, and other fish.... but wait, I'm also seeing a little lizard like my night time gecko buddy, mongoose, and a few snakelike critters! This is like a montage of my sailing life!  :heeha:   

I think this is what makes abstractions so interesting. Each person tends to see things that relate to them. Well done you!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks Val. I hadn't thought of underwater life, probably because here it is not so colourful under water as at your place. But it is a good suggestion, I think I will keep the gellyfish. My idea now is to keep bits and pieces of the different versions I made and put them together in one bigger painting.  :painting:

Dirk,

I'm thinking umbilical cords, so I will just stop thinking for now.

I love the colors, though.

Thanks Mea. You are right, it does look a bit creepy, but I thoight that made a nice contrast with the bright colours.

I see it as nice soothing shapes and colours.
