#DoodewashSeptember2021: Swan. Did you know the phrase ‘swan song’ came from an early belief that swans made no sound during their lifes except for a beautiful song while it was dyig. The idea is poetic enough that the phrase has lasted, even though the ancient Greeks proved it false.
I used an interference medium to add a shine to the swan’s wings and hated the effect it gave and tried to paint over it. The result’s a bit patchy. The medium probably would have been okay on a larger painting, but was too much for postcard size.
Whew, it’s hard to get back into my routine! I’m still behind on things, so posting will be sporadic. Yes, I’m a Sesquipedalian (someone who loves long words) so I’m taking advantage today, and using both the words sesquipedalian and sporadic! And, perhaps this note off-topic explains why I’m behind on things, lol.
