Looking through the website of Francis Sweet I am struck by the volume of work he has done, and the large sizes. I particularly like the composition and division of space in this one. The dark rocks and the dark beaks of the ptarmigans work well against the lighter shades of gray. The peaceful feel of it makes me relax.
This web image is tiny in comparison to the original size of 24″x18″. It would be interesting to see the texture up close.
