Trying new things

I've added more color to my charcoal girl, both watercolor crayon and fabric paint. I have to admit that I like what's happening here. Now I have to figure out what to do next. I'd appreciate any and all suggestions.

Today, I spied a swan in a small pond while I was out running errands. In the hopes that he (maybe she?) would still be there on my return trip, I grabbed my camera when I passed by home. I'm usually reluctant to take my camera out in the rain because I'm afraid I'll damage it, but I was emboldened to try by a photographer's tip that rain can make some animals more visible. Here's the picture I managed to get; it's not hard to figure out why swans were once considered royal birds.
