This is easily my favorite of the bunch. I do admit I put most effort into this one, and for two reasons:
1 - It's a gift to my dad, and he loves ducks even more than I do
2 - As mentioned in 1, I love ducks, especially painting them.
When I was younger I used to enter the Junior National Duck Stamp Competition. Each state would have a winner, and the winners of each state would compete for the final. I was always runner up to winning behind this other guy, but I lost focus. I'd like to do it again someday.
I referenced a photo that I took at the zoo. It still has some things that bug me, and I think deserves to be on a large canvas someday. Until then, I hope you all enjoy =]
