The Snack Bar, egret, heron, wildlife art by Fawn

"The Snack Bar"
5 x 7 inches
Acrylic on hardboard

Some people call the great egret a 'great white egret,' and some people call the blue heron a 'great blue heron.' Either way they are very large birds and very common around here. They are close to four feet tall, and have a massive wing span. I take pictures of them often and love to include them in my paintings.
This painting was done alla prima, which means I did it all at once. I love the using thick paint with fast applications. That gives it that wet in wet look, which in acrylics is harder to achieve than in oils.
