Swan Mother Mixed Media piece
I had a little request to make a mini album with a Swan theme, and well...it led to this!
I wanted to find the right image and decided that rather than search the internet for the "perfect one", I should just paint my own. After all, this is what I LOVE to do!
I used Canson Mixed Media paper, my Sennelier Watercolors, Ranger Oxide inks, Spectrum Noir Markers, and gold acrylic paint, among other things...
I added little details as I like with texture paste, and made sure I gave it my personal touch with different design elements. This was simply for fun, and I look forward to incorporating this painting into my other projects just as I have before. I love doing this, as I get to make one-of-a kind items that you won't find anywhere else. Let's face it, swans aren't a new "thing", but this one has a lovely gaze, as her little baby looks into the water.
My message behind this piece is simple. Tranquility is sometimes found in simplicity.
