Winterburn Beck - Teal
2 November 2013
Acrylic on canvas 508 x 406 mm
Winterburn Beck flows through some of my relatives land and has been one of my more frequent stomping grounds over the years. I learn to swim in it, race rafts, tickle trout and generally get thoroughly soaked throughout my childhood.
Not sure if it’s my imagination or not, but my favourite little duck, the Teal Anas crecca, appear to be doing increasingly well hereabouts. Some initial sketches and the painting half-way-through.
Detail of the pair of Teal, which is approximately actual size (on my iMac and iPad anyway!).
