Royal couple black and white swan, oil on canvas, 16”x20″


1 in stock


There are pair of white swan and pair of black swan. Why not one white swan and one black swan? In “Swan lake”, white swan is princess and black swan is evil. Why black swan has to be evil all the time? I am going to give the black swan a royal crown and made it the prince of all swan. The white swan is its partner. Therefore, they become the royal couple.
To be honest, I know the crown on a bird’s head is not practical. Even I can glue it on swan’s head I am afraid it would fell. So, let’s assume the crown stays on top of black swan’s head by unidentified force. 🤣

This piece was painted on Fredrix Blue label ultra smooth stretch canvas in traditional profile 3/4”. It has been varnished and carefully packaged with two same size cardboards, buffering paper, bubble wrapping paper and 4 corner protectors.

Although I have tried my best to match the color of digital profile and the actual product, the color might still vary depending on different monitor settings. Please be aware of this fact.

Note, the painting ships unframed.
Please let me know if you have any questions. 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.
