Swan-Animal Art

Oil on 5x7 archival canvas panel.

Swans have a special place in my heart...I never tire of painting them. Each piece of art seems to come with its' own challenge. With this painting it was the water. The photo it was done from showed the water as appearing too flat. I attempted the suggest depth by smoother water in the distance as opposed to darker, thicker paint in the ripples/waves in the foreground.

This photo was supplied by spOOky for the WDE at the Wet Canvas...a fun art event every week with a bunch of talented and fun artists.

Email me to inquire about purchasing

James 1:2-3 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

  2. Hi, Sandy! Swans achieve such graceful poses,,plus I live to see all the color/reflected color which is present in "white".
