Here is my newest painting.......and my first painting for the 100 birds challenge in the AW forum. It is a mute swan. I have never painted white feathers and found it to be a real challenge. This is also my first attempt at close up water......another real challenge. I am happy with this and was going for more of a "fealing" rather than true realism.

It is called "Silent Angel"

24" x 36" acrylic

It is difficult to find appropriate superlatives. Probably best to keep it simple and say that this painting is beautiful in every respect.

Thank you so much. Finding the right colours to use in the white feathers was the most difficult task. I wanted to keep the feeling of the piece kind of spiritual so I figured pinks and violets was the way to go.
