This is beautiful! The shadows are spot on gives great dimension. The fine feathers of the head and neck are very nice. Swans are so graceful and this one of yours certainly is too.

Grace, you are on a roll. Looks like the start of a series to me.

Thanks Patti for the wonderful comments.
Thanks Howard, I'm hoping to do an owl next, but have a few other paintings to finish first.

Yes this awesome. You nailed the backlighting. Very impressive. I like the texture for the feather too.

Thanks Glen and Gayle for your lovely comments.
Thanks Chammi, I appreciate your wonderful comments. I would like to do an owl soon, but still have a few unfinished paintings. I always start too many paintings. My lounge is starting to look like a studio with so many paintings and drawings, hopefully one day I may sell some.
