Old Coot

Acrylic Collage

This is one of my many humorous birds in a series, along with the Love Birds, Cockatoo, Bad Hair Day, Flamingo and Ostrich. This old guy is sitting on an orange rock in the middle of a stream.

For the accent color, I used a bright red in the feathers and the top of his head and stripes on his long legs. He has quite an expression too, like he’s been perched on that rock for hours. I decided to set him against a warm yellow sky for contrast.
