Spring Colours

Young Male Duck

20x20, Oil on Canvas

I thought this duck was some unusual breed, I was standing on huge rocks in the Toronto Harbour and the colours of the water were crazy beautiful. It wasn't until I got home that I saw the iridescent blue on his head and realized that I was looking at a mallard in it's eclipse stage of its development, which is what you call it when the duck is no longer a chick and is transitioning into the last stage of becoming an adult. This young bird in his environment with these beautiful colours just had to be painted!
