Linda, Oh so beautiful is your little duck. The water is just right.Good Job.

Linda - this is great. You've really set the bar high for the rest of us watercolorists! Really have to apply myself. I love the "precisely loose" brushstrokes and the wonderful colors. Looks like he's bobbing right along.

Thank you so much; I wasn't at ease painting the smooth water. I had to hold myself back so I didn't over do it.

Pat Koscienski said...

Linda, I agree with Erma, you really have set the bar high for all of us. I really like your play of warm and cool, and the way you captured the movement of the water.

Linda this is wonderful, juicy colors and lots of movement.

I love that you painted both reflections. It really adds dimension to this great painting. My only observation is that the duck is quite dark and gets a tad lost in the dark water. A few more highlights on this otherwise awesome painting would really make the duckling pop!

Linda, this is a beautiful watercolor painting. I love the leaf in the water near the second reflection. Also, you've captured the water so well with simplified strokes. Looking forward to more of your paintings :)
