Duck is done....moving on.

The mallard duck painting is complete.  You'll find the result below, and in my previous blog a few photos of the painting as it progressed.  You'll note that I dramatically changed the background.  I'm going to to go ahead and enter this painting in the Federal Duck Stamp competition.  When I began the painting I wasn't sure if this was going to be practice or a possible entry.  It's an entry...I'm a bit tired of ducks right now.

This was a great project though, for a couple of reasons.  One this is the smallest painting I've ever done 7" X 10", the mandatory size for the federal competition.  And two, this is the first painting I've done on masonite board.  It was a different experience from painting on watercolor board, but I liked it a lot, so I'm likely to continue with this surface.

Well, I'm not sure what's up next for my paint by numbers...stay tuned and I'll soon have an answer...

Thanks for checking in,
