Warm Light—Heron Peeking Through the Grasses

This piece is painted in acrylic on canvas. The shape is challenging and really makes for interesting compositions. I've been wanting to work a lot in greens lately which I think can be a difficult color to work with. I've discovered if I add tan colors as well as yellow and peach accents it makes the greens look better. The gray of the bird really stands out against the greens. In the water I used a glaze of lighter paint to make the ripples in the water. I think this is a really strong piece.
Thanks to my brother for the photo!
