Elva #92 and 93

I think canvasbacks have an elegant look, and when the late sun catches their head it almost glows ..... just trying to capture that feeling.  Painted on Strathmore Aquarius II watercolor paper ... a paper I like very much.
Sun and Shadows ..... I liked how the backlit trees were throwing shadows on the golden grasses of fall.  Just a quick study to try to capture the feeling.  

Painted on Lanaquarelle 140# cold press.

...that canvasback is gorgeous, Elva. You've captured the beautiful slope of their head so well. I really love the highlight of the head and the transition from the bright red eye to the bill. Lovely shadows... You definitely captured that elegant feeling!
