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!

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!

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.
