Duck and EDM 112 - Fresh


Duck
Originally uploaded by linfrye.
I've been 'getting into the Easter' mode with all the rabbits, baby ducks, candy, crosses, purples and yellows that are prominently featured in shops, gardens, commercials, churches. I decided to try stomething 'different' for me, and so I found a copyright free image of a baby duckling ....

The goslings haven't quite hatched here on campus, nor have the wee ducks, so I really appreciated finding an image to use.

This also fits the EDM Challenge this week - FRESH. Can you think of anything more fresh than this cuddly wee thing?

Lin,
Your duckling is amazing. I can feel the soft feathers and the sharp blades of grass! What a wonderful painting!

Oh she looks so fluffly I can just feel her; what a great job you did. And I just LOVE the shading on the grasses. You just keep getting better and better gal!

Lin, Great job! The shadow on the grass adds so much to the solidity of the duck and is a great contrast.

Goslings are not pretty for long. They quickly get into that ugly gangling stage. Your duckling is adorable. :o)
