The great blue heron possesses pleasing rhythmic shapes which makes it a desirable painting subject.

This exercise will focus on:
- considering the under painting, simplifying chaos,
- editing reference material and building layers to create depth,
- shape and proportion relationships,
- colour relationships with subject and habitat,
- building form using light and shadow.

The class will have a choice of two images, a landscape or portrait image. You may also choose to paint in a square format if desired. For Sam's demo, he will paint a landscape format in acrylic, 16x20 on masonite panel.
