Copper Pitcher

I adore the reflections on metals in Teddi Parker’s paintings, and after many an hour spent studying her works, I decided to give it a go.

Duck Duck Grey Duck

It IS “duck duck grey duck”, ya know! We Minnesotans have it right ;) This is from another reference photo on Paint My, I was really drawn to that orange foot! I’m really happy with how the background turned out. I sometimes rush through that part, but I tried to slow down and be more thoughtful about it this time.

Across the Pond

This was painted from a lovely reference photo off Paint My I haven't painted a landscape in ages and it was so fun! The scene is in Austria (Schlosspark, Eisenstadt according to the photographer's notes).  I tried and failed miserably at painting a hippo just before this one, so it was a relief that this one turned out.
