Amazing pencil illustration by John Gibb. The detail is so incredibly fine on these. Almost bought the heron nest one at the Mystic Art Festival.
Reddish Egret (Egretta rufescens)
Well, I’m about 13 hours into this piece so far, and I’m finally starting to get past “the blahs”! Every painting goes through that stage - it is utterly frustrating for a time because it looks like it’s going so wrong. Then there’s that magic brushstroke that changes everything, and suddenly it all starts to fall into place. This piece is finally getting there! I’ve still got a lot to go, but I’m starting to like what I see!
