Swanning around


Wow, you definitely get a feel for the power of this bird, great painting.

Well captured Paul, love the shadow colours.

Thank you Heather and Carole for you kind d comments they are much appreciated.

Very impressive, Paul.

Great painting can feel the power

Thank you for your kind comments, Mia and June. It was surprising how tall it look when extended up out of the water.

Love this Paul, you should definitely paint more birds, this is so good !!!

An Exceptional creation! Swans have been painted by most of us, but without this flair of your.

Thank you Linda and Rachel for you kind comments. Skylar thank you you comment is very kind and means a lot to me. I nice to have such positive feedback from people, participating other artist.

You’ve definitely captured the strength of a swan when the wings are extended. Well done.

Excellent pose Paul, you’ve chosen a pose that shows off its power and majesty.

Just browsing the gallery Dixie and this jumped out at me! Far removed from your usual subject matter, but subtly done and lovely, and you’ve captured the power of these lovely birds.

Thank you Christine , Fiona and Tessa. I do like painting a variety of thing Tessa, my preference is old vehicles etc I sometimes don’t see others as good enough for the gallery. Maybe I should dig some out and get other people’s opinions on them.

Hang on Studio Wall

A4 watercolour painted from photo I took in the summer. Very big powerful cob, such a strong looking bird.
