trying a few more waterfowl subjects..this acrylic is done on a 10" x 16" canvas board. this is my 6th attempt at painting. the subject is pretty simple but i tried to make it interesting by using strong color. i like waterfowl as subjects since i seem to be surrounded by them where we live and there is such a variety of ways to portray them. i did get a bit of glare from the camera when i uploaded the picture and seemed to lose a bit of color. let me know what you think.

owen...i do appreciate your comments...there is actually more detail that didn't show up in the uploaded picture. i wasn't too pleased how the pictured represented the actual painting...the painting isn't intended to be totally "realistic" (the way a photo would look) but i do see your point.... thanks! rod

by: OWEN JONES

HI ROD,I HOPE YOU DONT MIND ME SAYING BUT I THINK YOU SHOULD SLOWDOWN WHEN PAINTING,THE TROUBLEWITH ARTISTS (SOME ARTISTS)AND LIKE ME WE ARE IN TO MUCH OF A HURRY TO SEE THE FINISHED PRODUCT,YOU SAID YOU HAD TIME ON YOUR HANDS,WELL LET THEM HANDS TAKE TIME TO DO GREAT WORKS,WHERE IS THE FEATHERS AND THE WING,YOU COULD STILL FIX THIS PAINTING WITH A FEW STROKES OF YOUR BRUSH,STAND BACK AND LOOK WHAT YOU COULD DO TO MAKE IT STAND OUT.I HOPE YOU TAKE THIS ADVICE IN A POSITIVE WAY,AS THAT IS WHAT MY INTENTIONS ARE.KEEP AT IT,AND TAKE TIME. CHEERS OWEN JONES.
