Black Swans 36 x 36
This painting measures 36 x 36 with a 2.25 inch gold-leafed edge. I begin with graphite drawing on the wood surface, adding multiple layers of oil paint, washes, glazes, and metal-leaf. Each of my paintings has about 30 layers.
"Black Swans" is my newest series featuring 3 Blacks Swans, and Goldfish in a pond scene. This series is inspired by planning my own koi pond in the garden this year.
