Wildlife Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Art, "Into the Sunset" , 6x8" Oil

This painting was a real experiment for me.  I wanted to paint a sunset, wildlife and marsh, but could not find a reference image  that I liked.

Then I remebered a workshop I took, many years ago from Fritz vanEeden.  Fritz is an artist of international aclaim.  Among his many talents is his ability to paint images that he pulled from his mind's eye.

I gave it a try!

I started with the direction of the sky and clouds and then laid in the  wetlands below.


I have to admit, I did use a photo reference for the heron.  I just could not visualize all those body parts!

All in all, I was happy the day's efforts, and hopefully, this technique will come in handy in the future.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.
