9 X 12 acrylic started en plein air at Sportsman Park in Yakima, WA and finished in studio. The fall day started out cool and ended HOT, but the amount of activity in and around the water was wonderful. Such a flurry of entertainment. It was hard to focus on any one subject, but this mallard and a couple of his pals hung around so got lots of pictures to us later. I was able to get the water, grasses and a start on the lily placement before getting over heated! It was a wonderful day painting with 2 art buddies.
