Beach Reflections, blue heron
This gorgeous sunrise with vivid colors set off the silhouette of a great blue heron as he posed for my friend Carol.
I used a palette knife for some of the dramatic highlights in the foreground, which gave the painting stronger contrast of not only the highlights but also the thick layers against the smooth brushwork.
The frame (see below) is heavily textured wood, which I slightly accented with gold throughout and then gave it a stronger gold inner lip.
