Egrets in a graceful dance

This is a study using a style taught by a Chinese artist.  It is a blending of Chinese style painting and traditional watercolors. All the colors were mixed with just the three primary colors.  In theory any painter needs only three colors. But, mixing colors is an art that requires years of experience.  The main problem with mixing all your colors is coming up with a matching color on a subsequent mix. So most of us use a lot of tube colors to overcome the challenge of matching. This is truly a beautiful scene with strong light entering the painting and the reflection of the light and reeds in the water. The egrets are big but graceful birds and they almost appear to be dancing.
