Untitled Heron

I am just getting back to painting after a long illness so this is rough. Just looking for some feedback on finishing this. Will take better photos with camera instead of tablet on the final post.

This is 16 x 20 acrylic on canvas. Don't be afraid to be honest, I can take it.

This is looking good, I too like the highlights and the subtle colours.

Re: Untitled Heron

Thanks so much everyone. It is so hard to remember all that used to be habit for me but it is beginning to come back. This was a real challenge as there are so many grey tones.

I am thinking of adding more definition to the rocks in the foreground but do not want to overdo and ruin it.

It sure feels good to be painting again.

Re: Untitled Heron

Thanks so much everyone. I am really enjoying being able to paint again. I am trying desperately to not let health issues interfere with getting to the easel. I appreciate you all taking the time to comment.

Maybe you could put some shoreline from an over-cast day in northern Alberta.
