STALKING EGRET,6x8, OIL, SOLD
I think waterbirds are so interesting to watch. Here in Florida we have such a large variety of them. I would not attempt to name them all, but I'm pretty sure this is an egret, maybe even a Snowy Egret. I think they are one of the prettier birds around and when they have their plumes up they are almost as showy as a peacock.
I enjoyed painting this little piece, especially layering on the thick creamy paint on his back. Almost as good as eating ice cream!
