Bird Theme


Day 13 Heron SOLD
6 x 6
Acrylic on Canvas

Similar to yesterday's surprise sighting I managed to catch this heron close up with my camera as I was out walking my dogs several years ago and have been wanting to paint him ever since.  This 30 day challenge is a good motivator to get some sketches done of the many resource photos waiting to be painted.

Beautiful job Barb!! I really like the way you cropped it. I sometimes struggle with that and I like how you did it. Nice to find you through this challenge.

Thanks Anette and again Claire for your comments! I'm drawn to painting birds but they are sometimes a challenge to incorporate a design into. This guy made it easy.
