Artwork Description

“Great Blue Herons have always been one of my favorite birds because of their brilliant colour and majestic presence. This painting was an experiment in creating that brilliant colour in dramatic lighting. I wanted to capture the sun drenched colour of feather and down in strong morning light, but still keep a soft and subtle background to emphasize the bird. Adding small drops of dew helped finish the mood of this ‘Golden Mist’ morning.”
