Hope your week is going well. Raleigh today is 75 degrees sunny and great short sleeve and shorts weather. Of course by the weekend it will be only 45 and cloudy with a chance of meatballs. Enough on the weather lets get to the painting. 


Last summer I took some pictures around lake morton and found this swan among the reeds, I wanted a background that brought out the swan and to utilize the reeds and grass to further highlight the painting, Negative application was made around the swan to further make a dynamic contrast in the painting, This is a watercolor and pencil on 300# Fabriano Cold pressed paper.

Enjoy your week and remember I will be doing First Friday at Mitchell's Coffee House in Lakeland on May 1, 2015. Hope to see you there. See Ya and have a blessed weekend.
