This pastel of an egret was painted from sketches. The sketches were drawn on location. He was sitting on a bin near the creek and fish and chip shop waiting for a hand out from the fishermen. So he was a great model and he did not move the wind was blowing his feathers- and i did not have to pay model fees. It is sold but prints are available. www.shirleycharlton.com
Prints are about $80 aus.
