Starting to Add Ducks...Bluebills...

The back is sufficiently dry to begin painting my
bluebills. One challenge is on a larger sized painting
I could easily maintain a painterly emphasis on these
ducks...but, to attain the correct anatomical proportions,
the sense of basic simple details I'm having to use a
smaller brush. I'll be going back in with sky color
when the ducks are finished to soften the contours
of the bodys to thwart what could otherwise feel like
pasted on decals. Two are softer on the right...

Here's what it appears like thus far...












and the ducks up closer...
