On The Drawing Table (Loon painting)

Last summer I had the good fortune to observe a pair of loons on Martin Meadow Pond in nearby Lancaster.  One in particular was very curious and swam quite close to our little boat so I was able to take some decent reference photos to work from for the current painting I’m working on this week.  I find painting water to be almost as challenging as painting snow because of the subtle variations of colors and light reflecting off the surface.  If all goes well, I’ll include this painting in the Birds of Pondicherry show since I frequently see loons on the ponds at the refuge.
