This painting isn't quite done - maybe another 30 minutes of tweaking to round out the breast and belly of the bird. This is one of the originals that I'll be showing at The Waterfowl Festival November 12, 13, 14.

I've been working on this 8" x 16" oil for the past week, just an hour or two at a time. I've found that a painting will often turn out better if I don't rush it. I'll get the basic idea down - then sit it aside where I can glance at it during the day. I often find that the painting is more finished than I thought.
