"Pretty in Pink"-Roseate Spoonbills -original pastel painting

 View this portrait's work in progress here!

 Having beautiful pink plumage and a grotesque head and strange spatulate bill, roseate spoonbills are quite an odd contradiction. It is not until they attain maturity however that the featherless green mottled head becomes fully apparent, along with the exquisite intense pink feathers. It is worth to note that the pink plumage is a result of the bird's diet being rich in carotenoids (obtained from shrimps), which turn the white feathers pink.

Pictured on this painting are two birds, an immature and an adult, busy preening on a favorite log near a stream.
