Killdeer chick painting

This is the first painting that I've done in a long time!  It's of a little killdeer chick in acrylic on un-stretched canvas, 9 x 12.  I took a photo of Squiggy the killdeer chick and enlarged it on my iPad for a reference.  Originally, it was just supposed to be still water in the background with reflections.  But, as I worked on it, I noticed that it began to look like a beach during low tide, which would be very appropriate for a little killdeer to be running around on.
