Snowy Egret, wildlife art by Fawn

"Snowy Egret"
24 x 30 inches
Acrylic on canvas

This is a painting I started last year while I was still working at the high school. I am trying to finish up some of my older works so I can move on to new things.
This little egret is very flashy. He has bright yellow-orange feet and bright yellow around his eyes. I saw him land on these rocks and knew I had to paint him. I played up the contrast of the soft white feathers and the rough harsh rocks. I blurred out the background to make it have that oil painting look. Again I wanted to push the soft against the hard for contrast. I like the overall effect.
