This and its partner “Great Light, Great Egret II” are about amazing, wonderful light. I set out to paint white birds and use very little white, preferring Blues, violets, purples, raw sienna, fawn, all the while balancing cool colors with warm. Paintings ultimately are about light and how it’s portrayed, I am very tickled how these two turned out!
I do accept ideas for commissions and would love to talk with you about it. I am lucky enough to paint creatures and locations that inspire me.
If you are interested in a painting, two things are required: patience and the knowledge that it is my vision that you will be receiving, based on information shared between us. If we do come to an agreement, you will receive a one-of-a-kind Stephen Koury treasure.
