I’m happy to finally lay the pastels down on this painting of the swans at Lough Neagh.
It’s been challenging to paint but i just find the light so mesmerising and the swans so dramatic against the evening sky.
It’s also been a bit of a learning curve – working towards what o thought was the finished composition only to return to it and change the shoreline so it curves round at the bottom right hand corner and so extends the diagonal reach across the image. I’m much happier with version 2 of the finished painting.
Hopefully going off to be framed this week before going to its new home, although i hope to have a few prints available on the shop page soon.
