"Greater Yellowlegs" watercolor 5"x7" $85

The birds I paint are always more alive at the scene and this Yellowlegs was very active: in and out of the side marsh of the Connecticut River and lifting its legs gently through the shallows and dipping its head and prominent bill in and out of the water and more.
Still a painting can express our emotions towards the entire scene and more importantly jog that one memory years later. We all will see some differences;colors, shape, values and paint that which we see. However in the end they are all accurate because it is the memory and a work of art.
