Ptg Blue Heron
Painting - Egg Tempera Paint
I photograph Seabirds in the mangroves. The Great Blue Heron is my favorite. He is majestic, regal,and prehistoric. Here he was alert, ready and waiting and that is the moment I tryed to capture.
This is the ancient technique of egg tempera painting. This requires many, many hours of concentrated effort in technique which involves tiny brushes and at least seven layers. You get a jewel like effect from the transparency and layering (glazing) that can not be achieved quite this way in any other medium.
This bird extends a message of hope in God's infinate plan...
