After talking to schools, helping students, and talking with other artists over the last two years, I realized that there is a need for guidance in this subject. More and more, both students and teachers turn to the internet for aid. I created this guide for two main reasons: 1) To give junior artists and duck stamp art newcomers a place to start, and 2) To help explain how to legally and ethically reference photographs (especially if one is unable to get their own, which is the position for most Junior artists).
This is not a perfect piece of literature, and there is no One True Way to make a nice duck stamp artwork– this is truly just meant to give beginners someplace to start.
Please do feel free to share this with anyone that you know that might benefit from it!…

Though I don't plan to enter a stamp competition soon, it is helpful advice and reminders for general wildlife painting. I tend to forget to re-create a scene using the varied references and go into auto-mode.
