I've returned to this painting after a long hiatus from it and am starting to make some design adjustments. There are still more to come, but I believe the focal point to be developed is the interaction between the hand and the swan's beak. After some reflection I think this is because of it's reference (or rather, my decision to make it a refernce) to Michelangelo's God touching the hand of Adam. Because I got into painting from looking at other paintings when I was a child, I can sometimes be consciously, but hopefully not obviously, referential.
