The original painting is for sale. These ducks were eating dinner when I happened to spot them along the shore. I quietly stood on a bench to get better view of them and took a few pictures before they moved on. The ripple effect where the blue sky of the reflections meets the mixed colors of the trees was my favorite part to paint.
When I was working on this painting in my studio, a ladybug landed on the edge of the paper. I think he was interested in the excess water that was running off the edges. He watched me paint for a little but then he started getting in the way so I took the watercolor pad outside and set him free.
