#2498 - Crystal Kingfisher

Here's something a wee bit different, and also provided a bit of a challenge! The theme was "still life with glass" and well... I interpreted it as I see fit. I find Still Lifes pretty blah, they don't really do it for me, and I had these photos of this beautiful crystalware by Swarovski that my mother had taken in Rotorua. So I selected my favourite of the birds and gave it a go. The light reflection is the hardest bit of colouring glass, and I don't think I did too badly, although I would hesitate to say I did a good job! I rather like it though, and the recepient seemed to too.
