Hitnes Runs into Herons in New Orleans

As the muralist continues around the southern United States, herons have been a constant.

Ever since Hitnes landed in the States this summer, intent on retracing the steps of John James Audubon, he's been spying Great Blue Herons and Little Blue Herons. So when he was in New Orleans this month, he decided to draw them. The spectular results are below.

While he was in New Orleans, he was also able to go birding at Bayou Sauvage, with some help from Lousiana Audubon members. Below you can watch him sketching the herons he ultimately painted, and the resulting murals are below. 

You can follow Hitnes live on Instagram and see more images at theimagehunter.org.
