Artist's description:

Oil on canvas board, framed. This Mute Swan, is a subject that I had been looking forward to painting for some time. I was totally drawn to all the colors that appeared in the 'white' which ranged from shades of turquoise, purple, yellow and ocher. Swans are such beautiful graceful birds, yet they can become fierce and aggressive if provoked. I saw this contrast in the photo reference by Gary Jones (Paint My Photo) of graceful beauty versus attitude, which I attempted to portray in this painting.

Framed - includes white wooden frame ~ photo coming soon!

Materials used:

oil paint, linseed oil (painting medium)
