Painting 5 in Progress

I spent the weekend helping my husband move his graduate paraphernalia back home, so I haven't had a chance to complete Painting #5 yet. I'm having fun with this one though. Mallard drakes just seem to be so full of character. As a child, I poured over the illustrations in Make Way For Ducklings and although I want this painting to be realistic, I can't help thinking about illustrating childrens books as I work on it.

...I like the expression in his face. I can see this fellow showing up in a children's book. (I used to read "Make way for Ducklings" all the time. I do see the influence in your work! (I am a huge fan of Children's book art...go for it!)
