Still Water dawn - Blue Herons by C. Frederick Lawrenson
  Still Water dawn  (2006)
Subject: Blue Herons
Dimensions (inches): 24 x 32
Medium: Acrylic on Masonite
Description: This painting was an experiment in color and mood. It started with a walk around the swampy end of a lake. We saw these two herons perched like bookends on a deadfall hanging out into the water. I waded out into the water to take some photos, but when I looked at the pictures later on, I realized that the herons perched on the same log made the scene look like a giant H. I decided that I wanted to create more depth, so I moved one of the herons back in the painting. I also wanted to develop the misty quality and color of an early morning in the spring when the leaves were not yet out, but the water and the red color of the new shoots and buds reflect the colors of the morning sky.
