Watercolour coot and cootlet

Here I had fun with a photo of a coot and baby in Lake Geneva that I took a couple of years ago.

I’m very happy with the feather textures, watery shadows and ripply texture, but I’m getting increasingly frustrated with my scanner’s tendency to murder my watercolours. I’ve included some photos for comparison – the most delicate details are obscured. I don’t think I’ll be able to make prints from my watercolours until I can figure out how to capture them more effectively.
