Hey everyone! While Elizabeth was painting her wolf, I was working on painting a heron! A great blue heron to be precise. I got the idea from a great blue heron that lives in a pond by my house.
First I started with the outline of the heron and the first layer of the background.
After forgetting to take more step-by-step pictures, I went straight to the wing, head, and part of the body.
Then, I painted the neck and had too much fun with the feathers.
After that, I added more detail to the neck.
Finally, I completed the face.
That’s all for now! I love painting birds, so if you have any bird-related painting suggestions, I’d love to hear them. Keep on the lookpout for new posts!
