#12 Kristin, more ducks

14 x 11", acrylic on arches 300 lb
(c) 2011, klink

My friend took a stunning photograph of these two mallards, so I asked her if I could do a painting from it, and this is what ensued. Doing the water ripples with acrylic was fun because I could work both the darks and lights.

You've captured these so well, Kristin. Besides the very neat fluid shapes in the water, some of my other favorite aspects are the highlights on the heads, the differences in male and female shape and size, the hint of orange feet, and the rich iridescence of the male's head feathers. I would like to see this on a U.S. postage stamp!
