Kelly - Painting 55 & 56
Even though I'm just back from Hilton Head, SC, I saw this Great Blue Heron in March in Florida. I made lots of sketches of him, and have already painted him once (painting #35, an oil pastel). He would stay on the beach for hours near our condo, fishing and watching the water. He was so tame, I could sit feet away from him. I used a palette knife with very thick paint for this painting.
...another view of the same bird in watercolor this time. I used salt to get the mottled background, then splashed the whole painting with blue...
