Fine art illustration of a Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Great Blue Heron illustration was completed in (10/2008). I’ve been meaning to draw one of these gorgeous birds for many years. It took a little longer than I expected, an the lily pads on the water were a little more challenging then I expected. But overall I’m happy with the results. Whenever I draw an animal I always try to give a strong sense of it’s three-dimensionality. I think that comes across fairly well here. This drawing is based on a photo by B. Irschick.
