This time I stumbled across this beautiful photo of this beautiful bird in flight
I should have drawn it a little bit smaller and maybe a little bit slower.. I really like its feet, but I didn’t want to shorten its legs in order to include them ! – Typical. Toss it or live with it? As you know, I publish everything i do.
I think it might be the first time I’ve drawn a bird for my blog!

I think you’ve captured the angles of the blue heron perfectly. One “rule” I know from photography is to allow enough space in the frame for a moving subject to move into. So a bit more space around the bird would have been great. However, I know how hard it can be to keep a drawing to scale. It’s a mistake I often make to not allow enough room for the extremities.
That’s a good way of seeing it.. It does seem a little locked into the frame there.
