I Don't Know.....

This painting is not quite finished but I am unsure of what to do to it as I am not happy with it yet.  Sometimes it helps to put a picture of a WIP on here and look at it on the screen from time to time which seems to draw one's eye to mistakes, corrections needed, and changes to be made.  I feel the water is very busy and is detracting from the swan but that could be because I have stared at it too much this week.  A couple of days off should do the trick.

This has been painted using Derwent Inktenses pencils and blocks.

I think it is really nice but I agree the foreground is a little busy. I think part of the problem is that the swan isn't 'white' enough and busy itself and the contrast is too strong in the foreground making it busy. I'd soften the foreground and add a little more white to the swan. xoxo
