The trouble with painting on black paper is once you add a background it’s hard to tell if the image is a day or night time scene.

I decided on a pose where the swan definitely thought I was up to something and had some trust issues. I guess it was just protecting its child from paparazzi with the noisy clicking camera.

The adult black swan was seen gliding around the surface using its long neck to reach down and filter through the weeds growing on the bottom of the pond.
