“Preening Heron”

Great Blue Heron

 

My latest painting of a preening Great Blue Heron. The reference photos were taken at a nearby waterfowl refuge. I watched him for quite a while perched on that little log, on a windy day. His feathers were blowing about in the wind and I was amazed he was able to maintain his stance. This is a 12 x 16 acrylic on canvas painting. I’m still tweaking things a bit, as I always do when I “finish” a painting, but I’m quite happy with the way it turned out. Once I’m finished “tweaking” things, I’ll add a larger image to the bird gallery.
