Swan


I finished this over the weekend, the problem I have is that the scanner hasn't picked up all the detail on the wings etc, so not to happy with the finished image, but thought I would post it anyway. the overall size is around 5 x 3 inches, the water effect was achieved by blacking out the paper and then lifting the desired amount of graphite off until I acheived the ripple effect I desired, I have to say that i think this needs more practice!

Love your work Grahame, you don't need to be so modest!

I'm delighted that I have an old Butler painting on canvas, tour de france rider for the cannabis team!

If I'm stuck in the future I guess I can always e-bay it.. but for now it stays on my wall.

When are you going to get out of Nottingham? Weather is much nicer in the Vendée!

Grahame this is very nice. It reminds me a bit of a Monet only in black and white.
