THE SAUNTERING BATHERS – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1020556(1)a

I think  that these are Bewick’s swans that I photographed at a local bird sanctuary. In hindsight I should have done this in a landscape format, but I wanted to really focus on the birds and then one thing led to another and I included extra birds and well… here we are.

SWANS IN THE EVENING – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

I had a collection of photos I took of swans on the Thames in the summer and decided to arrange  them in a less haphazard grouping. I liked the way the evening sun highlighted the edges of the plumage.
