This is an alla prima oil painting of a Roseate Spoonbill flying over the wetlands of Carancahua Bay just off Texas Highway 35. I painted the scene wet on wet technique on a 8x6 inch gesso'd masonite board yesterday.
Doing this painting brought back memories of when I was a kid fishing with my Dad in this very same spot. We fished out of a little wooden boat with an old Johnson outboard on back. There wasn't any houses on the shoreline back then. I haven't been fishing in several years but, Carolyn and I go down to the coast all the time, with cameras at the ready, and have just as much fun. Sometimes we get lucky enough to capture something like a Roseate Spoonbill for me to paint.
The painting has SOLD, but prints are available. firstname.lastname@example.org .
I hope you enjoy the painting.
