Painting size: 14*19 inches, 450gsm Hahnemuehle watercolor paper
Something about the long distance perilous journeys that migratory birds take struck a deep chord in me, making me want to paint them in a stormy sky setting. Thinking of swans, I soon realized that one scene wouldn’t do them justice and so I have started on a three painting series on swans.
This first painting is a peaceful scene of Mute swans on the sacred Manasa sarovar lake near Mt. Kailash, the heavenly abode of Lord Shiva.
