Oil painting of pair of swan

This was a painting for my friend’s wedding last year. The reference photo comes from MT-Photografien.

It took me sometime to build up light effect but finally I did it. Well the good thing was my friend liked it. And she had a wonderful wedding. O(∩_∩)O

I only took some snapshots by my cellphone as a record for each layer. I didn’t shoot a formal photo for this one at end which was a little pity. I’ll keep that in mind in the future.

I hope you would enjoy this one too.

Thank you.

My paintings are an outlet to express the imagination I have inside my head that I can not put into words. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint and mainly create portraits of mythical creatures and animals transfixed in the shifting colours of seascapes and landscapes. There is a natural spirit and magic to these creatures and their energy draws me in. Choosing to paint these creatures as real living wildlife rather than abstractions, I use bold and vivid colours to express the imaginary intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated colour palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, subject and landscape, and light and darkness. Weaving their bodies and the surface of the landscape into each other through organic forms and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty, strength and innocence in these creatures that reflect my inner world.
