Imminent Flight

"Imminent Flight"
16" x 20" acrylic on canvas

I pushed and pulled this one back and forth until I got the lack of detail that I wanted to express the feeling of the scene... specifically the bright moonlight when things are seen almost mystically.  I did not want the viewer to get bogged down in minutia.  This can be tricky when dealing with wildlife painting.

Beautiful. Wonderful finished painting, love to see the in-progress photos and see the changes. Love your colours and "lack" of detail!
