Paintings of Italy, Italian Cityscape, Figurative Watercolor, Deanna Jaugstetter
The idea for "Blue Heron Nature Preserve" , a small oil landscape painting of on canvas came from a plein air outing this summer. Blue Heron Nature Preserve is tucked back in a wooded area on the way to Buckhead, an area outside the city of Atlanta, Georgia. While in this beautiful location, I had focused my attention on the colors in the water's reflections! After getting the basic shapes down while there, the painting was completed here in my studio. I feel that I captured the mood of the scene accurately!
