Playing with Background and Wings
As these herons continue to take form on canvas, the background is where Charlotte can take the most liberties with creatively capturing the colors and movement between reflection images and water movement.

The scratching and scraping used to capture the feathers within wings is also a signature style that allows for the eye to see the separation of cartilage and feather without painting each individual feather. Keep checking in to see how these herons continue on their journey to becoming a fully finished oil on canvas painting!
