Into the Light

Acrylic landscape painting of a heron flying through a forest
Acrylic on Canvas – 12 x 16 inches – $225
I wanted to paint another springtime scene and loved the way the light illuminated this forested path.  I really had fun playing with the different color relationships, creating contrast between the foreground and background.  The sun rays gave this piece a somewhat mystical feeling, but it still felt like it needed something more.  I added the heron to give it that last touch of magic that it was missing.
