Little Red Duck Watercolor

Little Red Duck/ watercolor/ 6 x 6/ SOLD
Before I start painting the large painting I am working on each day, I start with a small exercise to warm up. Sometimes, the "exercise" takes way too long. However, I always learn from each one . Usually, the little paintings are painted onto a piece of the back of a large painting that didn't work. This habit seems to provide the "magic" because these little gems usually just work out.
This is one of these small paintings. It is another duck from Sylvan heights. I love these colors. Sometime, I will look up what the duck species is and where it is from.

Artist Note: The form is made possible by the warm yellows against the cool cerulean/cobalt blues.
