Large Blue Heron – Fernando

Made by Lee BELL

Hi all , Have not been here for some time . WOW to all the new work. Love some of the new pieces The elephant head is looking gorgeous. I have continued to play with cement and have been working on upgrading my bases and am now making my internal armatures with steel rod and stucco mesh. Much much stronger. Fernando is approx 7 feet tall my most recent piece.

And a photo of the next one in progress below. Thanks Jonni for all you share – love your site.

Concrete Blue Heron, in process.

  1. You haven’t lost any talent while you’ve been gone! This belongs in a museum or some place where people can see it. Gorgeous.

    I’m lucky to live in an area where we have Blue Herons most of the year, and my dog drags me out walking a couple of times a day. I am always excited to see them, and your interpretation of these amazing bird is perfect. Really amazing.

    And the coloring is beyond. What a great job and inspiration.

  2. Thank you Jonni. I think the color has improved with a new mix of concrete stain raw powdered pigments mixed with sealers. It has definitely allowed for more layering watercolor effects. Thanks for noticing the difference.
