Art Description

Painting: Gouache on Paper.

Wood Stork and Water Lilies like many of the paintings I do now was inspired by the years I spent exploring wetlands as a boy in rural New Jersey. Also, I've always been keen on the colors that one sees in the early morning light. If there are no clouds and low humidity, there is a strong warm / cool colors that can be seen in the morning just following sunrise. Beginning with this painting, I will try to capture the colors one would see during that time of the morning. Why the wood stork? I've generally been very keen on birds with large beaks. Storks, cranes, ibises and other wading birds were not only interesting to look at but by the mere fact that they were wading birds gives an artist so much to work with regarding the background. Their wetlands habitat gives an artist so much to feed an imagination for great composing great compositions and more elements to put in light and shadow.
