Off to the Pond -WIP

Still painting options for the coming show. I've worked on this for several hour each day for the last 4 days.  The trick here is going to be the details on the ducks, their feathers, their personalities.  The upper background is finished for the most part.  When my husband and I went to Blowing Rock a couple of years ago, I took several photos of ducks around the lake in town.  This is a composite of photos from the inspiration of that trip.  The plucky walk and the determined looks on their faces always make me smile.

Still working....will post when it is finished.

Geese certainly do show a lot of personality, Cheryl. I really like the look of these on their march! Well done!

Thanks, Dean...still working on it. I'm lost in the feathers, trying to indicate texture in all of the white. They were cute...marching off on their way to the pond in Blowing Rock, NC.

We'll see if I can pull it off...
