swan /pastel on pastelmat

Two blogs in one day (thats gotta be a first for me). I was going to leave this one till completion, but as its nearly there, I thought I would post now, in case there are any useful crits etc ;-)

I am hoping to put this one in two small local exhibitions next two weekends, appropriately enough as the ref pic was taken at the local leisure park, where the second of these will be held.
16 x 12 (approx) when mounted

Absolutely first class G. It's got the movement in the feathers and water and the soft light through the feathers. A very tranqil and very perfect pic. Not just my opinion but hubby's as well. Brilliant!!! xx
