I am currently working on a few paintings. Three are commissions and one is not. The one that is not spoken for keeps luring me in. The above painting started out as a poured watercolour. Once I removed the countless layers of masking compound, I decided to go back in and enhance the ducks. This is something I normally do with poured paintings. Only this time I am really going back in.
The colours in the photo above are closer to the real deal - the first photo is overexposed but you get the idea. This is painted from a series of photos I took last spring. I really love the expression on the faces of these two ducks. I started this last year and set it aside to work on Christmas commissions and then the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge this January. As part of the challenge, I also painted these two duckies smaller and on Ampersand Claybord. I guess I am not finished with this subject yet.
