Catching herons

Children in Togo catch birds with snares for fun and sometimes cook them. So this is another illustration for Bene's book. For once my bird drawings don't have to be exact. I based this on some of my Grey heron sketches and photos of Goliath heron. And Bene's hunting experiences, of course.

I admire particularly your ability to achieve a certain result using such limited palett and avoiding
unnecessary deatils Mans!

Thanks a lot, Dougalis! Simplicity is exactly what I try to acheive!
