I drew the swans based on a photo of whooper swans. Then i was reminded of various fairytales of young girls or their brothers being transformed into swans, but i decided to draw the girl as transformed into a mermaid, whilst her brothers are swans, until the day the enchantment is broken. First attempt at painting a small illustration in acrylic rather than my usual watercolours.
