Along the Gilded Shore by Nambroth Along the Gilded Shore by Nambroth

Barrow's Goldeneyes
18" x 36" Acrylic on panel/board.

This is a piece I finished last year, but delayed in sharing as I wasn't quite sure if I wanted to make any changes or not. I finally varnished it and called it done! This one gave me fits to paint, as my work space is a relatively small table with a table easel. I often look at my work in a mirror to better "see" any problems that I become blind to as I work for long hours, and often paint upside-down for the same reasons. Flipping and moving the painting around caused some creative curses and laughs as I put dents in the drywall and ceiling tiles just trying to juggle it. I learned a lot and had fun painting this, but I'm glad it is off the easel!

Nice! The Goldeneye duck is one of my favourite birds, and I'm really glad to see a modern acrylic painting depicting this waterfowl bird in such a graceful way. :D (Big Grin) 
I'm really impressed not only by the goldeneyes that are wonderfully realistic but also by the water, the far-off spruce forest and the plains of hay, they look so fantastic. Nod 
Excellent job, fellow deviant! Clap This deviation is totally +fav'd!
