Beautifully done, Ron! I love the soft, warm colour palette and the pose, with downswept wings, of the elegant crane.

This would grace any room.

Gorgeous, Ron- the textures are so soft and subtle with lovely colors, and the paint work is so convincing -looks like a beautiful pastel painting. Definitely needs a click to see all the delicate details.
