Duck Study

8x8" oil on canvas board. $55. Available here

I was scrolling through my Isle of Wight photos a few weeks ago and found some shots of a duck, sitting by a puddle in the middle of a pig pen at Quarr Abbey. I wanted to try and capture the subtle colours of the feathers- I thought it would be quite a challenge, but it turned out to be the easy bit. Duck proportions, plus foreshortening, gave me quite a headache. Pleased with how it turned out though!
