View Full Version : Elegant Great Blue Heron
02-25-2017, 09:44 PM
12x9 watercolor on Canson 140 lb cold press paper completed today in a timed WetCanvas challenge in AMAE forum hosted by tyree. This bird from start to finish took less than 2 hours. This guy was watching for fish for his dinner in this cross post.
C&C welcome :thumbsup:

Beautiful! I really like the looseness and the colouring. I often see grey herons on the nearby canal, standing like statues.

Beautiful! I like how you've used the same colours for the heron as for the water, it has a lovely harmony to it. I like the sense of movement in the water v. the stillness of the bird too. :)

Thanks Penny, Kay, Christel, Chammi, and Federico. To me it looks blurred like I shook the camera so will reshoot another photo and delete this one. Sorry!

Totally fabulous! I'm in awe of good watercolorists!

I love the perspective you chose - most paintings I see of them are side views. Yours is a much more interesting angle. Bird & water look fabulous!
