Magnifique! The fog and the grasses are a perfect back drop for this beautiful bird!

Re: Heron in the fall

This is excellent! The moody, cloudy, atmosphere works great in this. The scene as a whole reads very authentic to me...

Wonderful painting. The background landscape is very atmospheric and fits well to the bird.

Robert, your painting has a wonderful ethereal quality to it. Love the treatment of the plants and grasses.

Re: Heron in the fall

Well done feeling of a cold winter day. I especially like the sky, grasses, and trees. The heron is well painted too, but you might consider a slight value change on the left wing where it is dipping down. It may be the monitor on my laptop, but it seems to disappear into the background when it should be more obvious since it is in the foreground. If you have a cellphone, you can take a picture of it and then change the color to the monochromatic setting to see how well the, values are working. I suspect the rest of the painting will show a very nice balance of values.
