Swans

It has been long time since I posted some quick sketches.
Last Sunday we went to our cottage by the sea, and notice a couple of swans still staying here despite the hard, cold climate, and the ice slowly covering the sea surface. It would have been nice to take a picture, but the birds weren't that close, so I tried instead to take some quick pencil sketches while watching them with binoculars (not the most comfortable way to draw, but I think it is used by many birdwatchers).
Once at home, I sketched them quickly in Photoshop after the pencil drawings.

Beautiful! how elegant swans are. The swans near here are all frustrated becasue their loch is frozen over, poor things. I have been enjoying your cartoon classicals too, well done not an easy thing to achieve i would think.

Thak you Ruthie! It's always nice to see you here!
I love to see swans at our place too. But, i wonder if they're so smart since it happens every winter that some are imprisoned by the ice. They should be able to fly away in time...

Thanks Gabriele! I appreciate very much your visit and your comment.
I love the lighting in these cold days, and I enjoyed a lot to paint it.
