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!

I love egrets too. I also love those "thick creamy" paint strokes of white on his back. It gives a 3D look to his feathers.

That thick paint really works! I love the way the thick strokes bring out the "pure" color at the end and stand out so nicely. I like the touches of pink around the picture as well.
