Revised "Crumpled" (# 43)
Laure sent me a very thought provoking digitally enhansed version of my "Crumpled" (great blue heron). I love it! She could see how swampy Florida habitat lends itself to the crumples, and I have to admit, Oregon has a few thick riprian areas the herons like to stalk around in. The painting on top is Laure's computer enhased version.
... and here my heron after I added more paint. I think it is a much more interesting painting now. The last of my ink was added after I studied where some of the suggested foliage went.
If anyone decides to crumple too, I suggest using rather light-weight watercolor paper. I used medium weight and even after ironing it doesn't lay flat. It looks better scanned than in real life because the scanner doesn't show any shadows.
