Mute Swan in Detailed Watercolour – An Original Fine Art Painting

The Mute Swan is one of our most iconic water birds.  A very graceful, beautiful bird with a distinctive long S shaped neck.  They can be found on canals, lakes, ponds and rivers and their cygnet is the well known ‘Ugly Duckling’ famed of the children’s story.  The young have brown plumage but will have moulted to the distinctive white by their first birthday.  This watercolour was filmed as one of my video tutorials so if you want to see it being painted you can!

Packaging & Materials
I have used an excellent quality watercolour paper and the finest of brushes to produce the tiny details which bring this painting to life.

The painting will be carefully wrapped in cellophane and protected with additional packing.  Likewise I aim for my originals to arrive with you in the same condition that they left me.  I use the Royal Mail’s ‘Signed for Next Day’ or ‘International Tracked’ service.

A bit about me!

I love to capture the life within my paintings and also enjoy working with the watercolour medium to create fine detail.  I am continually adding to my portfolio and draw inspiration from amazing photographers and also the stunning North Devon environment.
