I painted this for Dana Marie's Artistic Sentiments's challenge - Turquoise Dreams,
from a photo she provided
of a rich deep turquoise pool with a rocky background.
She asked that we add something to the painting.
I chose a white heron taking flight.
I also decided to paint mostly with a palette knife,
for the texture achieved on the rocks and bird, and smoother on the water;
with only a small amount of brush work.
I am thinking of painting this on a larger canvas.
