Mallard on ice

Watercolour 14"x10"

This is from a photo of a captured still off a video which I was gathering for stock footage. The video is fun – all these waterfowl slipping and sliding over the ice trying to make it to the un-frozen part of the lake. All making a lot of noise about it too. Colours on birds is quite specific. The blue flash was ultramarine, nothing else, but it’s still not exactly right.
