THE FAMILY’S DAY OUT – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1030529(1)a

One morning, a couple of weeks ago, I was sitting on the canal edge painting when this entourage drifted by. They came up from behind me and I had to drop the painting, brushes and palette and  scramble around in my bag for the camera, all without upsetting the group. I crept along the bank taking a number of shots from which
I compiled this painting.

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.
