11" x 30" acrylic/gouache on watercolour paper. If you take a few moments to look closely at a feather, you cannot ignore its incredible design and colour pattern. The beautiful purple/blue of a female Mallard’s wing feather speculum opened up the opportunity to celebrate the gifts of spring in a very unique way.
In this painting I was able to combine the details of a feather with a special sighting of a mother duck and her ducklings.
