Above is the completed Little Blue Heron painting, called Little Blue Heron and Red Wing Black bird, Lurie Garden. I completed the painting this past winter in my studio.
Little Blue Heron (an endangered bird) is a painting I am working on while teaching my Plein Air Watercolor class in Lurie Gardens of Millenium Park. The Little Blue Heron is a waterbird and can be found in and around marshes where the fresh shallow water meets with plants. This heron is considered endangered in some of the United States. I have been including many endangered birds in my paintings and illustrations to draw attention to their plight and hopefully encourage others to help out.
