This is the first time I have used oil paints. I chose the picture of the heron from my dad’s National Geographic magazine because herons are one of my favourite birds and I’ve never painted one before. The background was difficult to paint because I was using different shades of green, and for the bird I had to mix different shades of grey. Painting animals is important to me because we need to protect them and remember how beautiful they are.
