Great Blue Heron - Feather by windfalcon Great Blue Heron - Feather by windfalcon
A bird that I don't believe I've ever painted before! Great blue herons are marvelous birds, with lovely colors and all sorts of cool feathers.

I am reminded over and over how hard it is to scan blues accurately, especially when you have a bit of purple mixed in *sigh*. Even Photoshop couldn't help me this time.
