Ducky Time

Just a quick little still life for me today. I've been busy with more matting and other life's distractions. I painted this one in watercolour some time ago and thought I would try it again but this time in oil. Same reference, but two totally different looking paintings.

One thing in this painting that I am rather proud of is the blues. Normally, blues give me the most headaches when it comes to painting. But not in this one. I used cerulean and indigo and I think I achieved just the perfect blue for this painting.
