sketching the Great Blue Heron

A year ago we were in Vancouver taking a crisp cold afternoon walk through the Lost Lagoon Wetland in Stanley Park.  A Great Blue Heron posed with a dignified (or perhaps cautious) stillness as I took a photograph.

A few weeks ago, I made this sketch from that photo. This morning, I was playing with FX Pro and decided that the heron looked quite fine in this Stencil Poster Blue effect.

The Stanley Park Ecology Society has information about these magnificently plumed birds and their nesting and migratory rituals.
