I’d forgotten all about this painting of the Little Blue Heron (Egretta caerulea) I kinda like it. 


Apart from wishing to describe the species accurately with all appropriate field marks in place I  wanted to explore the idea of luminosity tied to a more formal design in the spirit of Japanese woodcut aesthetic. 

I also wanted to tell the usual story of the species and It’s odd truce with Caymens, Alligators and such.  


This painting is featured in our book 101+ Common Birds of Costa Rica, available on Amazon books in paperback and ebook versions and Apple Books in an ebook version.
