Swan 11x14, oil
I spent some of vacation watching this swan pair & trying to photo them in good light. They nearly always make a great silhouette. I think this one is the girl of the pair - judging by the protective behavior of the other one. So I watched swans and read a book - a mighty fine vacation.
This was a demonstration painting, and you can see it's unfinished - once she gets a real bill and her body gets defined better she can swim out and do her job of looking lovely.
