After I took these egret and swamp photos a couple of weeks ago,
I couldn't wait to try to draw one. I selected this one. I love the lighting,
and the composition. I did a lot with the eraser...lifting out the Spanish moss,
and the highlighted feathers of the bird. I still have some to do. Especially now
that I see it side by side with the photo.
I have the "Birds in Art" show to enter, and the "Strokes 7: the Best of
Drawing" book deadline approaching The book editors are looking for
drawn subjects that emphasize depth and distance. I thought
this drawing might "kill two birds with one stone". !!
