Awhile back, I started another watercolor painting that I was laying out and referring to as Ducks in a Row, working from various source photos. As I laid out the painting one duck at a time, I began to realize that some of my favorite photos of specific ducks would not fit well into the group composition. Such was the case of my Sitting Duck. If I layered her in, you would miss her backside and the neat perspective. So I decided she would have to be a
stand, er sit alone painting.
This photo shows the painting darker than she really is.
