More Swan Boats
I had such fun painting the swan boats last week, that I decided to paint some more of them! I think these paintings look good as a pair, don't you?
Like my previous painting of swan boats, I painted this one using only Sennelier watercolor paints. These paints have a smooth creamy consistancy, and the colors are very rich and saturated, giving my paintings an added vibrancy.

I masked the boats and dock before I painted the watercolor in the background. After the background dried, I peeled off the mask and reapplied it to the details that I wanted highlighted, and I began painting the boats. This photo shows the first washes of color and value being added to the boats, using Cobalt and Violet.
