Watercolor Birds #29: Common Gallinule

I've never heard of these birds before, but I might have seen them somewhere and mistaken them for coots. They're found pretty much all over the world, so their name is appropriate. I love how large their legs are.

The shape of the bird could have been better, but that's the risk when you paint directly, without drawing first. I'm pretty pleased with the painting itself, though the right leg could use some improvements.
