Ducks in a Row – WIP

25 Nov

It is no secret. I love ducks

Every few years I go on a duck painting marathon.  They make me smile.  With their round and full cheeks and happy bills, they are simply delightful to draw and paint.  This time around, I am working in watercolour.  Previous work was always in acrylics.

One day, when were out for a drive to see what I could shoot, we came upon a ferry landing that was covered with ducks.  Apparently, somehow the ducks know they are safe from hunters at the ferry  landing.  But I got some great shots.  Some were in the water while others basked in the sunshine, warming themselves on the asphalt and rocks.

The inspiration photo has an interesting perspective -below.  As I was shooting it I was thinking “he he heeee” ducks in a row.  Well it stuck.  The ducks in this painting will have come from individual duck photos I took and I will place them …well… in artistic order.  Hoping to heaven I can capture the perspective I am aiming for.
