This was the latest subject at my AVA group `Water'. As I've explained before we are allowed considerable licence in our interpretation of the subject.

I don't find `water' an inspiring subject but combined with waterfowl or ducks! I made the drawing the day prior to the meeting as this gives me more time to contemplate my approach on the day. I can concentrate just on the application of paint.
The duck colours are Raw Umber and Burnt Umber in various dilutions. A little black and some Quinacridone Gold (DS PO49). The blues are Cerulean, Turquoise (Lukas PB16) and Ultramarine Blue. At the end when dry I also added some acrylic white (Vallejo). If any masking fluid is called for I use the Pebeo Drawing gum. I once criticized this product because it is lethal if you get it on your clothes. However all masking fluid is similar and Jacksons now sell a product for cleaning it off clothes and such like.
Brushes used were the Isabey retractables and sizes 4 and 6 Kolinsky, together with the Da Vinci Mop Size 2.
