Wonderful egret, Laura. Great pose too, launching off like that. Most you see are standing in shallow water.
So lovely! The loose edges convey a sense of movement. Are you mixing compliments for your darks?
The darkness really sets off that white and I like the warmth in the bird, too. Beautiful, Laura!
Beautiful Laura, I like the soft colors under his wing and the dark of the background. lovely,Diana
Looks wonderful, Laura. Those darks are sometimes hard to put in aren't they. :)
You paint the light perfectly. I can feel the sun. (It may even be a little humid.) Super first try at a bird. Particularly a white bird. You've captured quite a bit of nuance.Excellent study.
Glad that you heeded your teacher's advice. It's a common issue (fear). In all these years of beautiful watercolors, I think this is my most favorite. In every way.
Oh boy Laura,This is just stunning. Amazing, astounding. You are a great painter.XOBarbara
This is beautiful, Laura. I love the backdrop too as this is typical of what I see when I see the herons around my area.
Go darker it's true, then i go too dark and then lift and on and on until the saturated paper cries for help, and i do too:) Your dark on the backside of the egret is most effective in lifting the subject, don't our teachers always say make it pop:)Oh, and of course i't awesome.
Wonderful, Laura! Awesome!
Love it! It captures the feeling of his flight.
You have captured the Egrets fluid flight! Very lovely.
Love this painting Laura!
This is lovely!Vicki
I haven't visited your work for quite a while and I can't wait to treat myself to a long look-through. Your work is stunning and really inspires me. This egret is so dreamy and the contrast and lighting here is amazing.
