Good job on this swan, you may want to tint your shadows some more with a light secondary wash with either umber or sienna or a taaaaaad bit of black and slightly exaggerate the shadows... Lookin awesome!

Yes, more depth to the shadows might be good. Black, I never use. Never in watercolor. Only gray or the complimentary color for shadows.
I do , however , agree that it's a bit unfinished. Truth is, I fear I will go TOO far and ruin what is a pretty decent picture. More often than not, I overdo it, and wish I'd stopped at good enough.
I might to a very light wash with umber, but I want to stay in the blues. Or maybe a very pale violet would look nice. On the swan only.
