    Thank you Vanity, AT-TA for your very kind comments. I am still a little unhappy with the feathers they don't look soft enough, they normally have a beautiful soft sheen which seems to be missing. I am trying different things out on a copy. If it doesn't work I will leave it for a while and go back to it once I have more experience with the tools..

    I normally don't like photo-realism paintings. I always say, I have a camera for that, and in fact I just do not have the talent it takes. But this painting, this fabulous painting destroys all my prejudices against the genre.

    I cannot believe the subtly and the physics of the moment so accurately caught. The movement of the water, fore and aft of the swan, is exactly how a sailboat cuts the water and leaves a wake.

    This is one of a kind. And I am glad I saw it.
    Thank you so much Dinkles,
    It was just something I saw on our local lake, this male was showing off to a female, he pushed his chest down into the water which caused the big wave at the front, the look of determination and power was beautiful.
