Something new on the easel

Just started off with a new watercolor painting showing five grey herons, four of which are youngsters with a funny "haircut" that looks sort of "punk-like". I took the basic photographic material at a place in Vienna where you can find some old trees on a very small island in the middle of a lake which host approximately 15 heron nests. It is a paradise for wildlife artists on the hunt for new motives ... size of the artwork is 16' x 16', watercolor on streched canvas.

  1. i like the idea of punk herons!!

    I like the tiger print here as well . . . have you seen tigers in the wild? Being abotu 4 meter from a wild tiger eating, in Ranthambore, was an amazing experience for me. More details on that trip, plus owls, and lots of other stuff on my wildlife art blog . . .
