Beauty in White

This painting is very different for me, but I have to say I really enjoyed the challenge.  I was taking a wonderful watercolor class and this was the subject.  I loved the grace of the swan and the reflections in the water were really interesting to paint.  Hope you enjoy this piece--it's painted on 300# Arches watercolor paper with transparent watercolors.   I'ts roughly 1/4 sheet, about 14" wide by 10" high. 

Here's the link for the auction

  1. Lovely Vikki, the white of the bird is very believable, you were able to define the feathers perfectly without overdoing. Your water is very natural looking too. The reflections in the water are well done and add so much. Having painted many birds, I am especially impressed with this painting, well done!
