Okay . . . yes. This was an image that has been haunting me for a while. Since I left to go to my parent's house actually
Sketched then adjusted after looking at one of my parent's bird books, but I guarantee this Egret doesn't really exist
. The plant the Egret is holding in it's beak is mistletoe, the plant behind it on the shore is hemlock. I'm more than welcome to hear anyone's opinions of the imagery . . . I'm just drawing what I "saw".
The sky was a premade painted sky I purchased from
but I did everything else myself. I'm actually very proud of the water and shading on the Egret.
You are not allowed to copy/trace/reference this . . . it's a very personal picture.
