Another Swan Lake picture

Here is another Swan Lake picture! This time it features Odette transforming from a swan into a human, in the scene where Siegfried first sees her. I love this story because it has a perfect mix of romance, magic and tragedy. As well as princes and princesses of course :)

This has taken me quite a while as it's a fairly complicated image, and backgrounds (the water and trees) just seem to take forever.

I created it by scanning a pencil image into Photoshop and colouring it digitally.

click for larger image!
For an even bigger view I recommend clicking, then right clicking, and selecting 'view image'.

The Pencil Image.

I have some news regarding my Wuthering Heights postcard: It is going to be exhibited in Keighley library starting on the 14th of April and later going 'on tour'. This is as much as I know at the moment and will update with any new information.

  3. Hello Poppy,
    Love your Swan Lake images, thinking we might like to use one as an image to illustrate a song we have written on the theme of Swan Lake. Would that be alright?
    Best wishes,
