My Peeps (Work In Progress) 11 X 14 Oil


This is a painting in progress. Was standing along the Yellow Breeches one day doing some plein air painting when this mother duck and her babies came paddling by. I was so glad that I had brought my camera with me! Want to add more color and reflective qualities to the water, and do a little more work on the ducklings.

this is going to be gorgeous when its finished, reminds me of a similar photo in my ref. photo file that I shot in the spring of a duck with 13 ducklings, thanks for your kind comments on my blog.

Love this sweet composition! You did such a great job, especially on the transparency of the water and the way their tiny feet show below the surface.
