Laura, These are just wonderful, as is everything your brush touches... I was wondering if I could borrow some of these swan 'lines' for a mural project in my dollhouse (see my sight)? I am doing a childrens room with a swan merry-go-round in it, and these would be just lovely on the walls... Let me know via email or on my blog. Thanks

What wonderful comments, with great information thrown in, too! Many thanks for both. I am so lucky, Lori, to be able to go and draw all of these animals. I will remember this month for the rest of my life.

Of course these made me think of other swans -- Leonardo's sketches for Leda and the Swan, Audubon's Common American Swan...

Yours are so fully themselves. Like your other animal sketches, your kind eye and hand don't make the swan a tool of art but keep the animal a presence, a being.

You know, I just love these sketches. And all the other sketches. I always look forward to your new posts :)

Lovely neck-gestures. Now I think that you are practicing for a fairy tale...

Lovely swans, beautiful lines and you've done such a nice job with their faces. I'm inspired by all the communing with nature you've been doing. There's a racetrack nearby where the horses are worked out very early in the morning and visitors are allowed to watch. You've inspired me to go visit soon. Regarding scanners, I love mine. It's so much easier than taking photos and trying to square the camera to the image and getting the lighting right. I do usually have to tweak the image slightly but it's so much easier than using a camera.
