Black Swan

I love black paper!
This swan was painted (drawn if you prefer) from a snapshot taken at the Gympie Duck ponds. The photo was pretty ordinary, but once the background was eliminated I think it made quite a nice little portrait. All it took was a black & white pastel pencil a couple of reds for the beak, browns for the eye and an extra pale blue soft pastel for the background.

Hi there

My photo
Gympie, QLD, Australia
I love to paint and draw and I often teach to share my passion with others. Currently I am focussing on producing some step-by-step painting lesson dvds.
