Painting a Heron
Hi, two nights ago I couldn't sleep. I was up and wanted to sketch a little so I started this heron. Today I've started painting him. Here is the photo of the final sketch and what I've gotten painted so far. I've been enjoying him. The colors remind me of winter.
Speaking of which we are getting an icy rain now with promises of ice tonight.. a good day for hot coffee and the blasted coffee maker broke!!! Ah well, J. called and he bought a new one and will bring it home after work..I love strong coffee and don't know what I'd do without out it..
I'm getting ready for the Heritage Festival. The title of the show is "Treasures of the Eastern Shore", a heron definitely fits.
Stay warm and dry and have a lovely cup of coffee, talk to you soon,Diana
