Lovely scene...beautifully executed. Nice sky and good use of the greens...Id the duck looking for a mate?

Wow your painting is gorgeous!

Perfect pine sticking out from the tops of the foreground trees. Your sky is fantastic and nicely sets the whole atmosphere, with great reflections in the pond. Yes Pat, I think the duck is looking for his mate!!

So cool to see plein aire with oil pastels - awesome!

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments, it took me about 1 and a half hours to do this it was a beautiful day not too hot for oil pastels outside.

That is beautiful . . . really love the sky. The water reflections and greens are well done as well. Is it 9 x 12?
