Acrylic wildlife painting of a heron standing in a river on one foot against a purple background
Acrylic on Canvas – 9 x 12 inches – SOLD
I’ve done a number of heron paintings in the past but wanted to try a close up scene.  This heron caught my eye with his stately pose and elegant feathers.  The photo that inspired this piece was actually all bright greens and yellows but I wanted something more calm and subdued for the background.  It was a challenge getting the color palette right but overall I’m very pleased with the result.
