More swans. Painted these beauties on an 18 x 36" gallery wrap canvas. There were so many great reflections on the white feathers. It was a beautiful day when I took this photo so the sky was cobalt blue. Maybe I should say Carolina blue because that is where I took this photo. Not sure what shade Carolina blue is?. I bet I'll get some help on this.
This one is really nice in person. It was kind of late in the day for me to take a good photograph. I am feeling more and more comfortable with painting large canvases. Thank you all so much for your kind and encouraging comments. Everyone of them mean a lot!

This is great. Love the values in the feathers and the water. It's fun to switch to large pieces.ReplyDelete
