Splash - Portrait of a Ruddy Duck

I'm taking a break from the oils until the owl dries just a tad... I keep resting my arm on the wet paint to finish up the one corner.

I was cruising through some of my reference photos and I came upon this guy, a Ruddy Duck.  There is something about him that just made me chuckle.  Perhaps it is the blue beak, or the absolutely adorable look in his face.  Either way, I just had to paint him.  I shouldn't be on my easel much longer.... just a quick little duck painting.
