From a photo taken at Bush Gardens of a egret fishing for dinner. Oil on 24x36 canvas captures the delicate and graceful nature of a white egret. I still have some finish touches to make, but couldn't wait to post what I have accomplished over the past week. When the paint dries, I'll add a light glaze to add depth to the submerged rocks.
This is the final product after 60 hours of work - give or take a couple. Adding the palm leaves in the upper left gives the piece a feeling of intimacy and the grass in the bottom left corner gives depth.
