Black Swans 48 x 36
This painting measures 48 x 36 x 2.25 inches. 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. The edges of this painting are also leafed.
"Black Swans" is my newest series featuring 5 Blacks Swans, and Goldfish in a pond scene. This series is inspired by planning my own koi pond in the garden this year.
