(211) Duck Pond
8 x 10, oil
Yesterday I studied the effects of light on the color black, so I thought today should be white in shadow. And yes, I used a photo for reference since my models didn't quite grasp the fact that I needed for them to remain still.

So, to be honest, these last two are really phenomenal. Really impressive on several levels. Go Mom!

Yes, they are! When I saw these I said...hey, those are my duck pond ducks... http://paintinglessons.blogspot.com/2007/08/painting-with-pastels.html

BTW, I'm a big fan of your work and wait anxiously each day to see what you will put up.

Thanks to you A's Da - and
Phyllis, I do like your pastel ducks--they a fun subject to paint, aren't they?
