Creative interpretations: Laughing Kookaburra

My hubby and I had a pleasant trip prior to Xmas. Armed with my new digital cam I tried to capture some local birdlife...this is one of the better ones
I hope you all have fun 'creating' a masterpiece!

Neve, I LOVE Kookaburras - we have only one at our Phoenix Zoo, but I've heard him a couple of times -- unique sound! He looks like the jub-jub bird.

Here he sits on a kaleidoscope of himself.

CJ, WOW, Wonderful. Great colors. Great blending of two styles. Too bad this isn't one of those rich, unique plates for collectors. It would be an awesome seller.

I agree Janet, this is a super result...! I was showing my grandson the other one you did CJ, of the parrot, how the parrots eyes appeared all around the outside edge. This is very effective.

Thank- you Pam. I worked on it in corel painter and then used the watercolor filter in photoshop. Neat, huh! In my experience, it's quite a deadly combo!
