Just Ducky

Diane Mannion, JUST DUCKY, 6x6" oil

      Found this duck napping on a partially submerged floating platform in a pond.  Took the reference photo years ago in Aiken, South Carolina.  Out of thousands of reference photos on my computer this one has always stopped me.  I think my ability to push paint around has finally caught up with the challenge of working this one out.  It's exciting to feel a little progress after over 700 daily paintings.  Now when I browse through my reference photos old ones jump out at me that I would never have been able to tackle before.
