Watercolor Wildlife Painting - Ruffled Feathers

This is the latest painting I have been working on for a bit and I think it is done. I just loved the feathers on the top bird and the sideways glance and angled stance of the bird below! You can almost feel the tension as soon as the images were combined ;) In my mind the bottom goose is female and the top is male, insert your own scenario for the tiff ;)

The top Canadian goose is taken with permission from a wonderful photo from Dan Star I love his photos, must be his engineering eye ;)

The goose from the bottom is taken with permission also from a photo from Yersinia's photos on Flicker. She also takes amazing photos and has a huge variety of photos ranging from architectural to nature.

I photo shopped the images together and call it "Ruffled Feathers". It can also be viewed on my website for my original artwork.
