Great Blue Heron Poster
The great blue heron (Ardea herodias) is a large wading bird in the heron family Ardeidae. Common near the shores of open water and in wetlands over most of North America and Central America, as well as the Caribbean and the Galápagos Islands. It is a rare vagrant to coastal Spain, the Azores, and areas of far southern Europe. An all-white population found in south Florida and the Florida Keys is known as the great white heron. Debate exists about whether this represents a white color morph of the great blue heron, a subspecies of it, or an entirely separate species. The status of white individuals known to occur elsewhere in the Caribbean and very rarely elsewhere in eastern North America, is unclear.

Richie generally finds himself painting on a digital canvas and he discovered some time ago that the digital art medium is a powerful tool. When combined with traditional acrylic and inks, fastidiously worked onto birch wood panels using brush and palette knife to create bold and powerful colours, the visual impact is spectacular !!!
Inspiration is derived from images and photographs digitally manipulated with thanks to modern technology to create an entirely new work of art. It is an evolving process to which he tries to capture only the essential characteristics in order to create a new body of work portraying his own ideal.
As far as style development goes, Richie tends to base his style from ideas, music, and visuals he might come across. In this illusionary art world of pixels, why not create something beautiful ?
It’s all about the colour splash !!
