Avocet - Dancing Light
Oil on canvas 12" x 16"
This study was completed from reference sketched at Oare Marshes in 2010.
I wanted to convey some of the dancing lights observed in the water as the day was ending. The Avocet is one bird that as an artist I would never cease trying to capture. This wader with its finesse and outstanding beauty 1ranks as my top wader to see and render in a painting.
