Study - South American Ringed Teal
6" x 8" Acrylic
My very first time to paint this particular duck. It is found, for the most part, in the Amazon Basin of South America. No, I did not go to South America to take the reference photos, but instead found this fella and several of his friends on the fantastically landscaped grounds of the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki. I was just thrilled to discover several types of waterfowl and parrots at this excellent hotel/resort. There will be more paintings from there in the near future.
