"Swan" oil 24 x 18

. Lousy title.... I must come up with a better one. Anyway I have just finished this painting. I loved the steely light on the water... really fun to paint. The swan was a bugger because It was mostly in shadow and It was a challenge finding colours that worked. I hope I got there in the end.

Thank you everyone for the positive feedback. I must confess to driving past the gallery to admire it in the window! I don't know... these artists and their egos!
