My egret looks a little too happy!
I am working on this painting and I have to tweek it a bit. He looks like he is really a happy bird but usually egrets have a more stern look to their face. This is the first time I have painted one with his neck all curled down into the chest and I have to finish his feet and the branch but his face is bugging me. Let me hear your opinions, and don't worry about hurting my feelings. I drew this bird on the board from a photo and I may have him a little off proportioned - maybe is cheeks are a little too full. I can fix it but need your help.
