NOTAN SWAN FINISHED - ON TYVEK

This is all I'm going to do on it. My goal was to get the paint to "stick" to the tyvek I have (not the kind Myrna Wacknov uses but the kind you use in construction and it isn't coated with anything to help the paint stay)...and to get nothing but greys in various colors throughout. I see I need to make that bill darker but that's about all with this...



What do you think? I think I'll leave the tyvek painting to Myrna - she's much better at it than I am!

I think I like the texture on this, that is what I think! The beak could be darker, as you say, but that is about it. I love the motion of those wings. This is a lovely painting and needs not much more.

From what I have read this is a very difficult surface to paint on so you have done well.

Thanks, soulbrush and Vicki, for your comments on this one. It isn't easy because of the tyvek I was using but I think I almost managed the beast! ha ha
Soulbrush, absolutely! Would love to trade with you and will work that out via emails with you :)
