Egret - Day 2

Here's today's work on the Egret painting. I spent almost all day on the water, prepping it for the vegetation and reflection work to come. I placed a few pieces of the grasses that will need to be in the painting to get an idea of what they'll do to the painting.
Until the next time...

I'm usually a silent admirer, but this painting demanded comment. Breathtaking.

Many definitions of art have been proposed by philosophers and others who have characterized art in terms of mimesis, discount oil paintings, communication of emotion, or other values. During the Romantic period, art came to be seen as "a special faculty of the human mind to be classified with religion and science".Though art's definition is disputed and has changed over time, general descriptions mention an idea of human agency and creation through imaginative or technical skill.The nature of art, and related concepts such as beltaff bag and interpretation, are explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics.
