Duck Walk

Purchase Information

I think one of the elements that makes this painting successful, is the element of tension. The ducks are walking, quickly in fact, to get away from the approaching onlooker. As I was painting this I imagined one duck saying to the other, "Keep walking. Don't look back, just keep walking!"


  1. A successful painting indeed! This is really terrific!

  2. I love this, as well as the imagined commentary! Did you work from sketches, photos, or did they stay relatively still enough to for you paint them from life?

  3. Hi Cory, Thanks for the kind words and interest. I painted this from a photo - but I think all the plein aire work I have been doing of late is helping me to stay loose when I paint in the studio &/or from a photograph.
