Heron and Blackberries

One of the students in Cathy Johnson's alumni group posted some wonderful bird photographs that we could use for our paintings. I sketched this heron from one of those luscious images.

The blackberries are just beginning to ripen here at home -- so I've posted that as well. While this sketch shows thorns, the ones we have are thornless and MUCH easier to pick!

Another great job Lin! Those berries look so yummy and superb sketch of the bird!

Your blackberries come very early. They are a terrible pest here - the authorities are always trying to wipe them out.

Oh man, that heron is FABULOUS---when I clicked on the thumbnail and saw all the subtle lines and washes, I was SO impressed and delighted!

Lorraine said...

The heron look wonderful although I've never seen one so don't know what they really look like but you did a terrific job on it.

But oh my, with my blackberry experiences,
I can truly say yours make my mouth water
for blackberry cobbler.
