'Swans on the Lake'1994
18" x 14" including frame and mount
Set on the lake with Hillsborough Castle in the background, this is a study not only of the swans but also the light and reflections on the water. Reflections are so hard to achieve, so difficult not to overdo them when you're first waxing on the white cloth. I always have to have an image in my mind of the finished work before I start.
