Woody At Greenlake

"Woody At Greenlake"
8" x 10" oil on panel

I completed this oil painting tonight (Tuesday) from a photo I took at Greenlake Park in Seattle, Washington.  There were other ducks in the photo, but I opted to paint just one wood duck, using my reference photographs I took somewhere else.  It was difficult to get the colors just right when photographing the painting, but this is very close to the original artwork.   

I began this painting at the same time as I began working on my red-crested cardinal ....(see here ) .... and being a smaller work it was just easier to finish first.   Tomorrow I tackle the cardinal painting.   Stay tuned for the finished result.
