Blue Heron Whimsy
Watercolor and Gold Leaf on Paper
This is my third painting for the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge
. I love blue herons. I grew up in South Florida where there are many. They are very majestic and graceful birds. They remind me of home.
I've been learning a lot about the use of patterns in this series. I'm learning a little more with each painting. I think my favorite thing about this piece are the triangles on the left side of the painting. I'd like to do more with them. I also incorporated some gold leaf into this piece. It's hard to see in the photo but it's the two lines that intersect at the base of the bird.
