Sitting Duck and Ducks In A Row Update

31 Dec

When I first began to paint “Ducks In a Row”, I envisioned a loose flowing painting – until I actually started to draw the ducks out.  I now have completely switched gears.  Highly detailed and intricate, using the tiniest of brushes and my best sables!  And I am having so much fun. What I first thought would be a large watercolor full of mallards has become three paintings of various sizes that work well together!  I am working from several photos that simply do not lend themselves to combining into one larger composite painting. So I decided to still paint them all – but separately! (this way if I mess up all is not lost 🙂 )
