Six Portraits of a Heron - My latest painting.

I picked my latest painting up from the framer today. Its about four foot high and I'm quite pleased with it. Its the first time I've painted my favourite photographic subject, the white-faced heron. I was a bit worried I wouldn't be able to paint them how I see them in my minds eye.I originally envisioned it as you see it here but after it was finished I considered cutting it up into pairs. Glad I didn't in the end.

Not sure if I will exhibit this one or a different one for Nga Manu. Still haven't decided. I'm glad I didn't cut it up too - would have cost me more in framing haha
