Don't usually even attempt animals or birds, but gave this one a try at the Art Group meeting I attended this morning. Took about 2 hours. It is Oil Pastel using Craypas and Caran D'Ache OP's on Water Colour paper covered with clear Gesso to give some tooth. Size about 9X6.

What a gorgeous duck and he has that expectant feed me look in his eye. Norfolk Island is, at least for the moment, a different country and I needed a passport to get there so he is a Norfolk Island duck.

WDE is good for trying different things. You excelled with this, going outside your comfort zone.

I think you did a wonderful rendition of the duck with the media chosen.

He turned out beautifully, the OP's and underlying sparkly texture reminded me of the soft fluff all ducks have beneath their outer feathers.
I applaud you for being able to be so pro.duck.tive (hehe) in your art group... it seems we are as much socializers as painters in my group LOL
