Swan I by Artist Cathy McIntire

Swan I, Oil on Linen, 11x14"
Swans are so graceful looking, and I love that they are all white. I often use strong value contrasts in my paintings and this certainly fits the bill (no pun intended..)

This is actually a Mute Swan, and one can tell by the orange bill. Trumpet Swans have all black bills.

The background color is a combination of purple and green. It took me a while and a bit of color mixing to finally get this wonderful, warm brown.
