This is a great white egret I photographed in the everglades. During breeding season the area around their eye becomes bright green and they grow special plumage -long white skinny feathers not visible in this view. It is always challenging to paint a white animal or bird and mix all the different nuances and shades of white for shadows, curves, sunlight. This is another palette knife painting for Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.
