Birds and other preys need each other for protection. One swan is on the lookout while the other feeds. The sunbathed scene creates a warm glow on the cold waters. I left my brush work visible in an homage to our feathery friends. 

This painting is on canvas board and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Eric

Eric Vanasse grew up in Montreal, where the classical methods of drawing and painting are no longer taught in most superior art schools. Instead, he gained his knowledge and skills by studying rigorously under American and European classically-trained artists who founded schools dedicated to the classical traditions. This path allowed Eric to merge the rich traditions of the past, the scientific knowledge of the last decades, and a contemporary spontaneity that gives a breath of life to painting. His intention is to capture the inherent beauty in life and bring a reflection on our life as humans and on our environment in a way that is not preaching.
