The Smith Heron

The Smith Heron

I had so much fun painting this painting!  It was the the first time I've painted a picture of this size.  My sister-in-law asked me to paint this painting from several photos.  She shared separate photos of the dock when the tide was high and low, some water, and a grey heron.  I came up with this - it was fun.

I had no idea how difficult it was going to be to paint a larger painting.  The largest painting I've done prior to this was an 11x14.  I also had the opportunity to try out some new colors.  Daniel Smith's Moonglow and Shadow Violet: two new colors that I'll be using a lot more of in the future.

Happy Friday!
