White Heron



I cannot seem to stop painting this weekend. We are having a quiet weekend due to my husband's accident and his need to recuperate, and I can't say I have missed any of the activities we might have done, it has been so nice to stay home and paint!

I am letting this marinate on the board for awhile while I ponder where to soften more of the edges, or detail the water more, etc. I submitted it to the WcW for critique, hopefully some of the wildlife painters in the group will help me decide if I am through with this or if anything else needs to be done.

Thanks go to Fred Reed for allowing me to paint from his excellent photo.

This is lovely, Susan! I think the only thing I'd change is the dark straight line at the waterline/shoreline - soften that and it's just a pleasant bg and the bird is the star = beautiful and I love that refection or mist behind the bird which looks very cool.
