Another Update on the Green Heron

I realized it's been awhile since I posted an update on the green heron. Sorry about that! He's slowly progressing along although I lost some steam on this piece after a few setbacks...I was sick with a miserable spring cold and then was involved in a car accident (I'm fine). I'm back at it now and this is where he stands as of yesterday. I'm trying to get the background in at the moment which involves alot of squinting and concentrating on shapes. The background is quite complicated with the reeds and other "shmootz" as I call it. I'm trying to keep this area soft so as not to take away from the focus - the green heron. I'm going to spend the rest of the day working on this piece so I'm going to get back to work. To all the mother's out there, have a Happy Mother's Day!
