Great Blue Heron Detail
Oil is not meant for photographic realism. The paint is typically opague and has body and texture... that's why I like it! It doesn't stop me though from still trying to make things look real - so they could actually live amd breath.
Trained at Queen's University as a nuclear physicist, "Phil the Forecaster" has been a professional meteorologist since 1976. An avid canoeist, Phil believes that a fully equipped paradise needs only a quiet back lake, a canoe, art supplies and a fishing rod. My desire is simply to get better - at art .. life and fishing!
