The Swan Maiden by Achen089 The Swan Maiden by Achen089
Swans always seemed such melancholic creatures to me.But i find melancholy has its own beauty.

Another one of my slightly experimental,more free speed paintings.Even if it might not show it. :D

The simplicity adds to the melancholy of the character. I love the fading of the hair. :)

How can I get your watermark off of the pic?  I see that people have managed to post it on Pintrest without the watermark.  I want to post your work on my social network profiles, WHILE giving you credit.  
Can you give me a link to your work without the watermarks?

Beautiful! Completely agree with you about swans seeming to be such melancholic animals, probably because of fairy tales like 'The Ugly Duckling' and the original ending to 'Swan Lake' and that iconic pose of theirs where they look down as if in sorrow.

P.S. I wish I was as good with watercolors as you are.
