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 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

Clicking on the thumbnail, I expected a photograph. The more I'm impressed that it turned out to be a painting.
The reflection on the water looks very realistic, especially with the turbulences where the water drips down from the foremost swan's beak. I also love the colours :)

Having another look at this spectacular painting, I wondered what you meant by acrylic on "board"? What kind of board, and did you coat it with gesso or anything before painting? I once tried to paint on some type of board...with oils...it was ridiculous, the paint would not spread at all :no:
