Tall Grass

8x10, oil on canvas panel
The reference material for this painting was a sketch and photo from a zoo many years ago. Since I wasn't sure about the bird (crane, I think) I slacked off and used the grass for the title.
It was a hard photograph to take since the bird was so light and the grass so dark. In order to show the bird's form, I had to make the grass darker.
