  • Beautifully drawn Margaret! We have a stream running outside the house and a heron comes fishing very often.

  • This is so good Margaret, the pose, so typical of a heron, and everything about it.

  • I know the feeling about adding pen work to something intended to be just watercolour...I have that problem all the time. Except it's not really a problem, because I love pen and wash work...and I love your painting. Margaret. More please.

  • Very good drawing of The Heron. I start with the intention of just using paint but invariably it becomes pen and wash. Super subdued watercolour for this regal bird.

  • It’s hard to resist adding a bit of pen here and there, I have the same trouble Margaret. It’s a great little piece, I particularly like the water.

  • Pen always seems to bring the painting together to me also Margaret, this is a lovely example

  • Thank you all very much for your lovely comments - they are much appreciated :) Herons are such fabulous strange looking birds - a bit prehistoric looking, especially in flight - this one is a juvenile so it's plumage is a bit more subdued than that of an adult.
