Oil on canvas 24″ x 18″
The first of two paintings featuring swans. One swan approaches the viewer while its companion looks on. This painting may be a similar area to ‘Deer by the Sea‘ with the sandy terrain in the mid-ground and sheltered water for the swans to enjoy.
After under-painting the swan I left the canvas flat which my cat found comfortable to spend the night on. Leaving two little paw indentations. Thinking the canvas was spoiled I restarted on another canvas before finding, days later, that the first one was OK after all. So I altered the background. It’s occurred to me that this would make a nice mural for a nursery or similar area.
Again I sketched and masked off the figures of the swans, built the scene as I felt at the time before painting the swans.
The other painting featuring a swan I refer to is ‘Swan Wood Dawn‘.
Hope you enjoy both…
