Evening Weather - Cinnamon Teal by Nambroth Evening Weather - Cinnamon Teal by Nambroth
A pair of cinnamon teal rest in the last glow of evening, while rain falls in the distance.

This was my entry for the Federal Duck Stamp competition, which concluded last weekend. I made it to round two, and scored about the middle of the pack.

I struggled with this piece a little bit, as the only reference photos I had were dark and blurry, and this species does not live around here so I couldn't get more. I had to "make" a lot of this painting up, and I think it shows.

9" x 12" Acrylic.

Cinnamon teals are probably my favorite ducks. They're beautiful!

I can see some of the made up parts as I looked up pics of this species, but they are so slight, I wouldn't have noticed them if you didn't put that in the description. Extremely beautiful!! I want your talent so badly!! To paint in acrylic is one of my dreams, and I'm starting in water color. I know they are completely different things, but still, I have to start somewhere.

another BEAUTIFUl realistic drawing, my friend. 

Beautiful. just. fantastic.

And it's even more great considering the fact that you had no good references for those cuties. I also love that the reflect in the male's eye is so correctly put, that it looks just so ALIVE. *_*

I still love this piece of yours! The background is just incredibly lovely! I love the pose you put the ducks in too. :) I'd say you did amazing for difficult references. :nod: I'm also super happy you got to the second round this year! We'll have to see what next year brings for both of us. :)

Picking a species for next year is gonna be very hard. Email me if you decide and need refs.. I have refs of some of the species for next year.

Yes, it's going to be difficult to decide. The only thing I know for sure I don't want to do are Red-breasted Mergansers. I painted them once before, and they weren't that fun for me. I'll email you once I get more of an idea, haha.
