Salt Marsh Series: Great Blue Heron Studies

 Today I went looking for pictures of Cranes to study,

 but it looks like the bird I want to paint is really a Great Blue Heron.

A Wiki CC image of a Great Blue Heron inspired a couple of loose moleskin studies

~ and painting the image from an iPhone browser kept me out of the weeds.

The wash with W/N chinese white softens the second study nicely.

 I really didn’t appreciate what a beautiful and majestic bird they are until now.

A little more procrastination/intimidation to work through then on to the bigger project.
