Please seriously critique! Micron with colored pencil 20x30 on illustration board.
first off, this is gorgeous!!!Thank you all. I think the line of the background tree mirrors the heron’s back too much. I meant for the young to be camouflaged but it’s a trade off to make them noticed to the viewer. I do think darkening behind them would help (that’s supposed to be trees below the nest as great blue herons often nest high ). I see that about the base. Do you think I might darken the branch going off to the left a bit?
