    Swan (Lake)

    This has been a very hard one to do, I still think I may need to do some more work on the Feathers I couldn't get them quite right, what do you think.

    It's beautiful! Feathers are really difficult to paint realistically, but I think you did a good job! And the water is really good!

    I think it is beautifull the way it is. You do not have to get more details on the feathers but if you want to....I have been looking at some Swan pictures and for the details, on top of the wings they have these small fluffy feathers which you can detail by highligting them a little more.
    For the big feather on the wings, you can add some shadow to make them more visible as individual feathers.
    For the chest and the neck it has a structure like waves....I do not know how to explain better...(in english )
    But only if you want to because again, it is perfect the way it is....this is your creation and it looks very good indeed.

    I refer to this image I have been looking at...

    It's a stunning picture! You succeeded to paint a most difficult scene.
    It's practically perfect.
    Anyway should You go on I would just try to break a little the line of the rounded part of the wing trailing edge, the rim I mean, which is possibly a little too regular, like a rounded curve and, maybe, add some more noise and highlight bubbles/ sparkles on the front wave...
