  • In 2016 I saw a lovely photo of a swan which took my interest and made me want to try painting my first swan. Steve Lynton a photographer I know in St Ives kindly gave me permission to try and was pleased when I forwarded him a copy.

    I came across the photo again when I was looking for inspiration over the weekend and decided to try another version.

    Last time I used a grid to assist me to draw, but this time I just free hand sketched out the outline only. It felt a totally different experience and I remember feeling so tight on the first one and really put pressure on myself to get it exactly like the photo. This time was a much more relaxed experience. I have added the progress photos on my message page as cannot see how to attach here.
