6" x 6" Acrylic on canvas
I just completed this new miniature and it was wonderful to combine two of my favorite subjects in one painting..... waterlilies and a Wood Duck. I apologize for the photo of this painting not being the best, but after several tries I decided to settle on this one. I will try again to take more photos of this painting later today before I post it to my main website's gallery of paintings. I did make a blog post there with lots of information about Wood Ducks and included two of my reference photos for this painting. To see this additional information visit here
I have been painting in acrylics and in miniature sizes to make things easier for me until I mend better after breaking my right elbow. I do believe I will begin using my oil paints again very soon as I miss them so much. Oil is my favorite medium.
I did want to share that there is such a thing as ornamental Wood Ducks, and they come in such colors as apricot, white, and a beautiful silver . They are not found in the wild, of course, but are instead the product of selected breeding and may be purchased to raise at www.mallardlanefarms.com . You might enjoy just viewing the beautiful photographs of these ornamental Wood Ducks at that website.
I welcome all comments and if interested in purchasing the above painting please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Mahalo !
