WDE 25 Sept - Duck!

Hi

I'm new to the WDE, but the pictures this week was just so inspiring that I had to join (you usually find me in the watercolor section, but I'm fairly new there as well). I just love painting animals and the duck was just to cute to leave alone.

This is acrylic paint on watercolor paper (my first try), it is Fabriano hot pressed paper 12x18" and mostly Liquitex paint.

At the two hour mark


Five hours later (dinner included...maybe three or four hours of painting) I'm calling it done.



Thanks for the pictures Li!

Welcome to the WDE Mona! Your duck is beautifully painted - the plumage detail is excellent, and that hot pink beak is spot on. Your water and reflection look great, and I especially like that ripple in the background - nice touch!

Re: WDE 25 Sept - Duck!

Another WDE newbie enters the room with a BANG! This is so beautifully painted Mona. You caught the water color perfectly and the detail is Fab. Soft furry head, pink fading to black beak, great plumage definition, spot on light and reflection. BUT... it's that foot that takes the prize! Great work. ( And if that's your first acrylic, you've met your new best friend/medium.)

Hope to see you as a regular at the WDE's!

Li

Re: WDE 25 Sept - Duck!

Thanks Sharon

Thanks Li, it is my third acrylic (first one finished though) but the first one on watercolor paper. The water was a real challenge for me and I can se lots of things to fix on it but I'm leaving it alone now.

Beautifully painted. I love how you've handled the water and the duck's reflection.

Hi Mona, Welcome. I second everything that has been said, the water is super cool the reflection well done the foot is superb and the fishy ripples nice touch. Beautiful painting.
