Mute Swan

acrylic on canvas -roughly 46" x 50" We've sold our summer house here in New England. We're in the process of moving. This painting has already been put in storage. I thought it was finished back in "O6 but decided to rework it this summer. It was good to switch onto it while working on some smaller canvases.

These just stretched and gessoed canvases are drying outdoors because gesso smells. I start with a medium rough canvas then layer on gesso to make it smoother. The next step will be a thin coat of color. Pale yellow is always good.
