Heron at Fiske Millpond, Upton, MA

This was an ambitious one for me but has a lot of good stuff in it.    We were visiting our friends Mark and Geneen and Geneen mentioned that the pond up the road was beautiful and I might like to take a look at it for a painting.    She was definitely right and frankly I haven't managed to do it justice here.   The reflections on the water are magical and we managed to catch a heron perching on the large rock in the evening sun.

A couple of intermediates :

The initial washes.

Almost there here.    Especially pleased with the foliage.
