Evening Elegance - Tundra Swans by Nambroth Evening Elegance - Tundra Swans by Nambroth
A trio of Tundra Swans (with more probably off-frame) casually feed in the last light of the evening.

I've had the amazing chance to observe these beautiful native swans in person on several occasions, and it's always a treat!

The color temperature on this photo is not real accurate but it's the best I have for now. :)

Acrylic on board, 16" x 20".

I don't recall exactly, but it was over 100 hours. I am slow!

I can't believe how you do this. It looks like a photograph. Alone the water. I've never seen anything so realistic done in traditional media :O
