Description

Watercolour Portrait of a Pair of Swans – An original detailed painting
The Mute Swan is one of our most familiar water birds.  With a wing span of up to 2.2m it is also one of our largest.  The painting depicts both the female (pen) and male (cob).  They will usually remain faithful to one another for life and share in the duties of raising their young.  When the young hatch they are covered in brown down and have short necks….not a bit like their elegant parents!

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.
