My entry is based on a pair of Canada geese. I was walking through Brynmill Park in Swansea last year when I came across the main pond. I caught sight of the geese silently paddling together and they seemed at peace as I wandered by. I watched them for a while and particularly enjoyed the ripple effect they caused as they paddled. This tranquil scene was the perfect inspiration for a work of art. I decided to paint this piece with soft shades of watercolour to highlight the serenity of both the birds and the natural world. I blended shades of brown and grey to achieve the colours of the birds' feathers, and I also mixed brown, grey and black hues to capture the pond, the birds' reflections and the ripples. Then I outlined each aspect of this piece in pencil to highlight it.
