Day 18 - Swan Parents Guarding Sleeping Cygnets, Walking Bridge at Waterworks Park


The objective of this simplification exercise was to capture the scene with least amount of detail - using background and simple shapes to define birds, in the book it was chickens.  The swans on the pond in the cemetery by where I live has babies this summer and my summer walking buddy, Cindy snapped a couple of quick photos that I used for reference to complete this exercise.

Monday afternoon the local Plein air group was at Waterworks Park.  This is a quick watercolor I had to finish at home because it started to sprinkle.
