Crested Duck painting

We have 6 ducks and yesterday I decided to paint our crested drake.

We’ve only recently got this pair and haven’t even named them yet, but he’s already been painted. I’ve been organised and already uploaded the speed paint video for this and prints are available at Fine art America  and Society6. I’ll get round to uploading my Peacock painting on there shortly. Those that follow me on instagram will have seen that painting.

He was painted using winsor and newton gouache, I’m becoming quite a fan on this stuff and was completed on A4 Daler Rowney mixed media paper. I like how this paper handles things pretty well without warping too much. It’s also the paper that I’m using for my inktober pictures and it’s really nice not having to worry about the ink bleeding through into the page below.

 

Fan art Friday

I’ve just started trying to do a fan art friday thing alongside inktober currently.

Here’s today’s, as shared on instagram,  a painting of Jemima Puddle Duck. I even did a little speed painting video for this.

It was painted with Winsor and Newton Gouache in a Daler Rowney mixed media sketchbook.

Reflections – Coloured pencil picture

Reflections are based in the truth, but aren’t always what they seem.   I think that’s what attracted me to do this picture.

 

Created using Luminance coloured pencils by Caran D’ache on 140 lb A4 Daler Rowney Aquafine smooth watercolour paper.
