This is such a complex arrangement but yet it is executed so well. The bright colors of the bird though are what really hold my attention. Well done :-)

Oh my! Congratulations on your Daily Deviation!
I like the composition with the simple light blue background. Even though they are all organic forms, the bird is a nice contrast to the pattern of the reeds. The inclusion of the bobber is a great added touch.
You did a great job of capturing the look and character of your subject. He has a simply wonderful countenance to his face...if a bird can have a countenance to their face. :)
You have a beautiful range of values here with plenty of contrast. And a well unified palette as well.
Great technique on display here in the use of value changes and transitions to show the planes and contours of all the little reeds. I am thoroughly convinced that i am looking at a bird in the reeds.
It's a sterling piece of work! :clap:

Is it just me or does that tree resemble a heart with arteries coming out of the top?

Beautiful colors and details. I like the inclusion of the floater in the background. It's nice to see wildlife art that shows things as you would actually see them and not some idealized image.
