I really like it Colette. You have really captured the feeling of taking off the water

More excellent work. I especially love the way you handled the splash. Personally I feel that painting the subtle patterns of female ducks is much more interesting than the males.

Colette Theriault said...

Ah, thanks guys! I actually had fun painting this one...not too many frustrations so that's an improvement!

Lovely work Colette, there is a real sense of movement.

Colette Theriault said...

Glad you like it Gayle...I can't wait to see your amur leopard finished!

Dors said...

I can almost see this duck taking off the sense of movement as Gayle says. Perfect, love it Colette.

Colette Theriault said...

What drew me to paint this scene was indeed the movement. I am happy that my painting was able to convey that feeling. Thanks Dors for your comment.
