I started working on the composition of this painting last year and then had put it aside as I was busy with commissions. It was inspired from a photograph I took while visiting Florida during the spring breeding season. This Great Egret was busy pruning his feathers and long graceful plumes and seemed oblivious to the fact that I was a few meters away snapping shots of him.
I will be posting a time-lapse video of the work in progress at a later date as I now must get back to those commissions waiting for me in the studio.
This painting is now SOLD!
