I love Blue Heron. For Chinese, heron represents strength, purity, patience, and long life. This is my second effort of painting Heron again. I painted the first one from Brenda Harris' book sometime in January this year but wanted to paint a portrait-like this time.
It was so much fun layering colors over and over so many times to make it looks real and soft feather-like.
This is done on 16x20 inches stretched canvas using acrylic paints.
