Last Sunday morning on my beach walk, I was lucky enough to see this magnificent blue heron AND I had a camera with me. Thankfully, the bird stood still long enough for me to get this shot. Photo edited in Aperture.
Texture Tuesday's theme this week is flowers - oh no - I don't do flowers - hmmm...what to do. Inspiration - add a flower to the blue heron photo. What do you think - does that work?
A couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to see this painting at the Prado in Madrid. (I have seen it in books before and always admired it.) I made a quick sketch and thought it would be interesting to make a small wall hanging.
