At Home with the Black Swan Family by Helen Duley

I grew up in a remote East Gipsland wetlands, surrounded by frogs, small scuttling animals…and of course the Black Swans. I have loved these gentle giants of birds all of my life, and as a child, tucked up in my warm bed at night, I would lay awake, listening to their sad cries echoing into my bedroom across unseen distances of dark lapping moonlit waters.

Now that these lost wetlands of my childhood have disappeared into crumbling sand, I paint these iconic Australian birds, as magical childhood memories of once brimming swamps, and all of their beautiful and sprawling fertility.

This is an original mixed media painting (watercolours, pen and ink, coloured pencils) on archival top quality watercolour paper. The size in 56H X 38W cm.

My intricate Mixed media technique for this painting/drawing has been created from many layers of top quality artist’s material. The first layer consists of artist quality watercolour paint. The second layer is composed of a drawing within the main areas of interest (in this case it is two Swans) in pen and ink. Here I am using both fine-liner and fountain pens. The final layer consists of many layers of semi-transparent artists light-fast coloured pencils, to achieve a painting with a rich matte silky sheen to the painting. All the art materials used are of prime archival quality, and will delight you for many many years to come!

PLEASE NOTE: This Drawing is not ready to hang on the wall. This painting has not been framed. As this would greatly increase the cost of the painting. For ease and safety of delivery, this painting on watercolour paper will be delivered rolled up in a sturdy tube. Please contact me if you would like it to be delivered in any other way via help@artloversaustralia.com.au
