"Tricolored Heron", Scratchboard with Inks, 28"x28"

"Tricolored Heron", Scratchboard with Inks, 28"x28"
Photo Description:
I came across this heron on the Anhinga trail in the Everglades, Florida. This piece was an experiment with color and feather textures. I tried to use the blues and pinks to create a surreal mood. This piece has been adjudged "Best Drawing in Show" in the Illinois High School State Art Exhibition. He won first place in the Blick’s Pop-up Art exhibition this year, and also a Silver Key in the Scholastic Art competition. He has also been awarded 1st place in the Congressional Art Competition and is currently hanging in the Capitol building in Washington, D.C.
