Another hour or so today on the Blue Heron. The grass at the feet of the Heron was driving me crazy so I decided to leave it alone for a bit and start work on the head. I love the colours that this piece seems to demand. Muted shades of mocha and blue grays. I haven’t decided yet if I will leave the background untouched or whether or not I will add in some water but I have it in my head so if I go that route it won’t be a blind last minute decision. I was able to photograph the piece today with natural light which if you saw the last image, makes quite a difference in the colours.
