Great White Egret in flight at Rushy Common

This was my first experiment using Adobe Fresco on the iPad Pro. Normally I use Procreate on the iPad, which means painting in pixels. There's been a few occassions where I've been pleased with what I've done, only to find out that I've set the resolution too low.

Adobe Fresco on the other hand, has both bitmap and vector tools, and it's the latter I've used here to convey three views of a Great White Egret. I captured some rough photos as it flew overhead at Rushy Common, enough to use as reference. As the light was low, you would get two colours of shadow. The front facing was warm, while the wings behind were cooler.
