  2. 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.

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

  7. 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.
