'Neath The Willows - Blue Heron by C. Frederick Lawrenson
  'Neath The Willows  (1996)
Subject: Blue Heron
Dimensions (inches): 25 x 31
Medium: acrylic on Masonite
Description: I was fascinated by the Great Blue's prehistoric like grandeur, but as I would frequently sneak along the waters' edge trying to photograph them or study them through binoculars, I would always manage to spook these ever alert creatures into flight. I decided that this was the moment that I wanted to capture in my painting. This particular type of willow tree grows wild along the water's edge and their shade takes the glare off the water so the heron can see the bottom better, which aids him in his hunt for food. When I saw this scene, I was immediately attracted to the negative space between the leaning trees, which became strong V shapes in the sky and the reflection, that pointed inward. The same V shape can be seen between the wings of the heron as he lifts off. It just seemed to be a perfect fit.
