Duck Stamp

Well, this year I'm running a bit late with my duck stamp entry, but with a month and a week left I'll still have it done. The duck is a Greater Scaup, in a dramatic stormy setting.

The painting is done in acrylic on illustration board, a really versatile surface that allows me to work lots of detail in without being hampered by a highly textured board.

And this is my "studio." Nothing special, but it gives me enough space to work around the mess that is my desk.
Since this is my last year to compete in the Junior Duck Stamp competition, I'm really pouring myself into this painting. The stakes are high!
