White Heron

I had an absolute ball painting this guy. I love the photo, the lights were magical, David is a great photographer!
I painted this on single thickness gallery canvas 12" x 16" in acrylics.


  1. Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeautiful JJ!!!!! mine is coming up soon .....

  2. Beautiful JJ. You have captured the colours very well!

  3. I like the bird JJ, but I think the water colour is a bit harsh, too blue if you know what I mean.

    But hey, you did better than the one I haven't had a chance to do yet.

  4. Thank you folks for your thank yous', thank you Bruce for your critique. I love critiques!!!

    This was a hard picture to photograph successfully. If I had the water looking realistic, I lost the colours in the bird, and those colours are reading correctly. I took this painting to the market yesterday, and got positive comments on it, which was good. I ask people what they think and why, when they say they like a painting. I have actually sold a couple that way, as they have really looked and realsied they really liked the painting enough to take home :D

  5. Love the reflected light in this JJ!
    I think the water could be a little lighter though, it quiet strong in value IMO
