Egret Reflections Study 1

I have a new obsession with these beautiful white Egrets that live in the marshes and hunt on the beach. When they appear in the landscape, they add a little bling-like sparkle of brightness and life. Since I'm working on some larger pieces that include some of these guys, I started out with a couple of small studies. It helped me to play around with the color and forms on a small scale before jumping in.
