I love to paint swans. This beauty is painted from the same reference as another in this group. Sometimes it is fun to “re”-paint an image to see the differences that happen during the process of painting.
I also love strong value contrasts, so I seem to lean toward dark backgrounds against the white coloring of the swan. I also gravitate toward earthtones for my color choices, usually adding a spot of stronger color to give the composition a little punch.
I would say this painting is a true reflection of my preferences.
