a carnival of well organized color is dancing while
the scene crystallizes in a moment and new features continue to appear - nice strong evidence of some of the artist's process decorates the finished work.

I think it is swell!

cropped versions would work also

only one small question...
of the front duck
is the lower part of the bill that large?
perhaps I am being ignorant...

very colorful, alive and welcoming to view

I really like the subject matter. Your color choices are great along with your technique. The only thing is I think the closest goose’s bill is a tad disproportioned to large.

al22,
I'm no painter, but just wanted to let you know your water here really comes alive and has a lot of movement. Nice depth.
I too am noticing the difference in bills on the birds. Having grown up raising both ducks and geese on a farm the one on our left looks like a goose, the other a white duck.
Otherwise its a piece I would hang on my wall.

Have a great day! :)

Love the colors, the reflections, and the "flow," all wonderful.

And echo the "bill" objection-the front one does look more like a goose and the back a duck.

Put a stake in this vampire, and try to get the bills organized on your next project.
