Nocturne on Lake Huron: oil painting

I love painting various types of light, and different types of day. This painting is inspired by how beautiful Lake Huron and its inlets are in the evening, when the water is a symphony of blues and silvers.

Nocturne on Lake Huron: oil painting of a great egret in the evening light.
“Nocturne on Lake Huron”, oil 11 X 14 inches

The painting is of a great egret silhouetted on the lake. I used my typical palette (ultramarine blue, yellow ochre, burnt sienna, burnt umber and titanium white) painted over an orange underpainting done in acrylic.
