Elva #60: Rusty, a Sandhill Crane

I painted this portrait of Rusty, a sandhill crane for my blog.  I've been writing a three part series about Rusty and Broken Toe.   I painted this from one of my photographs.  Late afternoon sun was hitting parts of the little marsh and Rusty.

Painted on Lanaquarelle 140# Rough .... it is always a treat to paint on good paper.  I liked how I could rewet an area without leaving any harsh lines.  I found paint did not lift as easily as on some paper.
