Nouvelle Heron Blanco(SOLD)

My first go on one of these smooth wood panels. I am instantly aware of every brushstroke. I love painting on these. I applied 4 coats of gesso, sanded between coats. It seems as much work to prep. the wood as it did to paint it.
This white heron was stalking a slough near Bitter Lake.
Oil on 3/4" wood panel 11"X14"
This painting is sold.

Majestueux que ce héron. J'aime le choix des couleurs et la lumière qui l'illumine.

I love the brushstroke in your bird. It seems this wood is a perfect ground for you. The stately position you captured gives it such a dominating, kingly feeling. Love the colors and texture in the shadows and feathers. The mosaic brushstrokes in the distance are flickering fun to view.

Nice job!
