The Duck

I have been working a lot with Holbein’s drawings as inspiration recently. Here is my latest painting. Old meets new as traditional merges with funky! I photographed my journey with this painting so you can see the different stages along the way.

The freedom of a little bird over a large icy city. So much freedom in fact, that the bird is on her way off the canvas. This piece is a study of space, cooler colours and the emotion of the little bird. The backlit silhouetted tree creates balance to the painting. The pale yellow sunrise announces the hope of a new day.

A blessed weekend to all – remember to enjoy the present moment!
