Swans! - student project

Thank you Maria for yet another beautiful class. I rarely use masking fluid, so this class helped me get out of my comfort zone.

I enjoyed painting the water and the waves, but I feel I could have done the reflection better, especially at the level of the main swan's head. And I like the shadows I created on the main swan, except the front of her neck (right above the water, to the right). Once I saw the white part to the front, the paint had dried andI could not smudge it anymore. But this is why we practice, right? Next time better. Overall I am pretty happy with this painting, for a first time.
