Heron legs and more...

My favorite part of this painting has to be the bright orange sunlit legs of the little green heron as  I don't get to use orange very often! They are such beautifully feathered birds and those legs turn bright orange as the birds mature. Splendid little birds.

  1. This is developing beautifully! I was wondering if you're actually working on black paper, or if you've darkened the background with pastel?

  2. I look forward to your post every time, Colette.! The legs and feathers on his back is lit up so beautifully. I like the way its shaping up so much...
