Eucalyptus Leaves IV

I've had a few obligations that have interrupted my painting time. I always hope to get back on track, but my track is a bumpy one to begin with.
Watercolor, 7"x 7"

Check out this great blue heron! It's looking out over the bay from my roof top--what a big bird--makes a big sound too!

What a gorgeous painting. Something about eucalyptus' silvery powder over light green leaves and those rich reddish brown stems. You've captured this beautifully.

I love herons. I think its a good luck sign that he/she landed on your roof!

I love this!

Green is my favorite color and I love plants, so how could I not adore this one?

I love the close up view of the eucalyptus leaves. The soft greens go well with the reddish brown stems poking through.

Just great, Susan!
