I drew this today to familiarise myself with this beautiful blue herron I photographed just stepping into the water on the riverbank last summer. I have never painted birds before and am excited at the prospect of painting this one..I have shots of him/her in flight also....amazing bird...so incredibly graceful in the air.

I think everyone must be commenting on this in the critiques forum, but I couldn't bear to see it sitting here with no replies http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/frown.gif

In addition to my comments in critiques, forgot to mention how I liked your rendering of the reflections/surface of the water.

Best wishes
