Still Waters, Wood Duck with reflections

"Still Waters"

I was caught up in the movement of the water mostly, and of course the wonderful feel of soft feathers and tiny details.  This is one of the few oil paintings I still have available. 

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want (for anything); He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside still waters; He restores my soul. 
Psalms 23:1-2


This painting is one of my early works from when I used to paint in oils.  Severe allergies to the solvents caused me to fall in love with the water clean up of acrylics.  I use the paint in a similar way, only everything moves much faster now. Oils takes 2 weeks to dry, and acrylics dry in 10 or 15 minutes, so corrections and layers of colors are made  quickly, and the final details are much easier to add now because I can rest my hand on the dry painting while I sharpen up areas that need more interest. What used to take months to complete takes a week or two if I stay with it!
