M Is For Mr. Mallard

Today’s quick paint project.  I took the picture of this cute little guy sitting on a log next to his mate this past winter.  They were just waking up for the morning and he kept stretching and preening as she swam away.  I knew I wanted to paint him when I saw him.

Tomorrow I plan to start including Orin (The Bird-Watcher) in my post.  He will give some fun facts about each of the birds I’m painting.  By the way, these quick little paintings will be for sale at the Clark County Open Studio Tour, November 14 & 15.  I will paint a bird for each letter of the alphabet (the X is a surprise installation).

Enjoy Mr. Mallard.

  1. Love the bird paintings. We met a gentleman who takes all kinds of pictures of birds on his nature walks. I am giving you his email address: sheejim@gmail.com. Thought you might like to contact him for pictures that you could use. His name is Jim and he is a sweet older man.

    Have fun painting.
