The pirate ship in Bandaras Bay, Mexico is a well known tourist excursion [aka trap]. This bird was no less a bandit than the pirates though. I snapped him sitting on this chair with a piece of shiny – something – in his mouth. I plucked him off the chair, flipped the chair horizontally, and then [after a LOT of puttering] plunked him down looking out at the pirate ship as it cruise in this amazing pink sunset from last December.
I won’t bore you with the details [I have an epsom salts soak waiting…] but here two of the photos. Although this isn’t watercolor, acrylic or mixed media, it is teaching me quite a bit that will be useful in the future in my work… besides it’s just SO much fun!
