The artist was inspired by the movie the Swan Princess Movie, the technique is impressionism and impasto The bright red, yellows and orange shows a warmness to the painting. The autumn leaves fall in the background as the swan sits in the warm blue lake. She is waiting for her true love. This represents the innocence and purity of a young maiden fully mature. The second meaning is beauty after being labelled “ugly duckling” a transformation of inner and outer. In the movie, prince Derek must pass the physical appearance to see the inner beauty of the princess.
The signs of the painting are young and new love, purity, and innocent. The calmness of the lake while surrounding contrasts show roughness.
