Brazos River Bait Camp, Original Oil Painting (Alla Prima)

This is an oil painting I did today of the Brazos River Bait Camp.  It is painted on a 6x8 gesso'd masonite board.  The camp is located in a bayou off the Brazos River in Coastal Texas.  There are many birds in the coastal wet lands of Texas.  Herons and egrets are plentiful and we often see other species such as the roseate spoonbill.  Farther down the coast in the Aransas Pass Refuge you might get lucky and see a whooping crane.  Also there is a new nature center near Bay City, Texas that has a lot of wildlife and birds which is frequented by bird watchers, photographers, and painters.  I hope you like this little painting of a piece of Texas.
