Golden Ripple by Nambroth Golden Ripple by Nambroth
A common sight around here and through much of North America are Mallards! I encountered this hen during an amber sunset, and the light was glaring off the water in front of me. It left an impression and I finally made time to paint it!
Acrylic on board, 8" x 10"

Ditto on everything that has already been said. I love the detail of the water, the colors, everything is just perfect. But after all the great comments, I would love to add some  constructive criticism. Looking at the picture, I couldn't help but think that top felt empty after all the amazing details of the ripples and the duck. Even if it was just a small bug on the surface of the water or some sort of shadow from a tree that might be near the water source would give it a little more interest. As I said, just a small change. Otherwise, it is truly wonderful. I could only dream of being able to paint water like that.
