Carol McArdle Bird Paintings for Sale

My newest bird painting can be seen on my website, It is of a great egret caught in the glowing rays of sunset while perched on the top of a cypress tree in the Big Cypress Preserve in South Florida. The bird's white feathers were catching the rays of the setting sun and turned subtle pink, orange and yellow.
To achieve the effect of the radiant sunset sky I painted many layers of glazes with acrylic paint and medium. Each layer of paint was transparent with slightly varying colors to create more 'shimmer' and depth.
To paint the cypress branches and leaves I spent a lot of time brushing in hundreds of individual leaves to simulate the effect the tiny needle type leaves. I love the long 'dripping' cypress blossoms and they really add to the mood of the painting.
The Title of the painting is "Cypress Sentinel" Acrylic on canvas 20" x 16" Own the original for $1,800 or.....
