WDE 3 Feb 2018 Swan challenge

I didn't really do it justice IMO but it was fun and got me thinking about design, which is never a bad thing.
a skinny and a fatter Sharpie in my 5x7 sketchbook.


Thanks for hosting, Harry! Wish I had time to do several more.

This is delightful! I love the contrasting black/white areas on the swan and the border is lovely.

This looks really nice. The contrast is great and a well done border.

Great little Art Nouveau vignette. The sinuous floral frame clinches it. I’m glad you joined in with this!
