New WIP: Little Green Heron

I have a little green heron underway. This one is a 12x24 oil on Gessobord panel. This one is going to be particularly challenging because of the heron's marshy surroundings...reeds, water, slimy algae...you get the idea. Hope I can pull it off! I photographed this heron while at Chincoteague NWR a few years ago.
