Welcome to my rambles about art, mountains and wildlife, the passions in my life. Good to see you here.
Fabulous painting, Sharon!
A very striking pose, beautifully captured Sharon. The colours for the shadow on the neck work so well.
Sharon, this swan is beautifully painted, in fact the best swan painting I've ever seen. Honest!
Now there's a coincidence!...not five minutes before clicking onto your blog two Whooper Swans overflew my house!..spooky!!That's a cracking painting Sharon, a real beauty!...[;o)
Such a beautiful painting Sharon, the contrasts so dramatic
A pure beauty this swan. Well painted.
I know it is silly but I didn't know swans could fly! I thought they would be too heavy to get off the ground. Anyway, this is a beautiful painting and I do so love how the shadows on his neck appear. I think this is an awesome composition!
You have done and amazing job with this, I wasn't sure it was paintable, but what do I know!! Love this and cannot wait to see it hung up. The images are now on my page http://walksnwildlife.blogspot.co.uk/
Now that is wonderful Sharon, no its better than that. what a talented lass you are
Incredible! I love the rich color and wonderful composition Sharon.
Assolutamante magnifico questo cigno! Complimenti Sharon!
Thank you everyone so much for your wonderful comments, credit for the composition has to go to Gary for his wonderful photo!
Wow, amazingly painted , wonderful rendering !
That's fabulous! And so is the photo.
The subtlety of your work in this piece is fabulous.
Such a beauty!
Sharon this is truely fantastic. It reminds me of the old masters like Caravaggio's chiaroscuro technique (light against dark). If you don't know it, look it up as you will definitely see a likeness and it will show you how far you have come. It really is fabulous stuff. I count myself lucky to have seen your development from the beginning. What next I ask? xx
Painting at its best!
