This is done on blue mi-tientes 9x12 - any c&c would be helpful - I was trying for a foggy background :( Thanks for looking in :)

Hi coconut,
Nice job on this! I love the herons.They are plentiful at the lake near where i live.
As to helping create more of a foggy atmosphere...
maybe adding just a hint of something in the fog, like a shoreline, etc. Then blend it out carefully with whatever colors you are using for the fog? Hope that helps you a bit. Fog or any kind of mist is difficult for me too, so I'll watch for others suggestions as well.

beautiful! and so heron-like

I notice a lighter background echos the shape of its head and beak (and legs) -- might want to tweak that

Lovely delicate work. You have captured that sense of stillness very well.
