Seven Stroke Heron




"Seven Stroke Heron" .......8 x 6......oil......$100 to whoever asks first!!


Last time in Rockport we ended with a fun exercise! I like to ”Seven Strokes” with my art classes! … I led them in this composition…step by step we painted this heron with only 7 strokes....
If you spend Easter near Aransas or Rockport, I hope you will enjoy an Easter Sunrise Service on the beach! If you are there on Saturday April 7, please come paint with me at a "Saturday Sunrise" at my favorite location,"Cove Harbor". I will be teaching about capturing the sunrise FAST en plein air...we will paint early so that you can be home by early Saturday evening.
This session will start at 7 a.m. at Cove Harbor, in Rockport, TX , and it's guaranteed to be a SMALL GROUP!!!

Filling your brush and applying it seven times is amazing. But even more so is capturing the essence of the bird.

This is a beautiful painting Virginia. I'm not a golfer but I like to use the analogy when explaining painting. Less is more.
