Lord Fix A Duck Part 2

In Part 1 I used videos to demonstrate several techniques using alcohol inks on Yupo paper.  My intent was to paint a loose, free flowing image with just the essence of the subject. Unfortunately, my nature is to paint in detail so the flowing part will have to be the background and the detail section will need more work to make me happy.

Here’s where I was at the end of Part 1 (A) the reference photo (B) by Paul Sherman.

Here’s what I decided needed to be fixed (C):

It can really be helpful to figure out how to fix mistakes. Some of this I have on this video (7 min) including how I used the Adirondack fillable pen to make the water lines originally and to fix the waterline.  The waterline is higher than where the reflection is for the duck because the duck is not jammed up against the reeds but is forward of them. Also on the video is how to increase the contrast by darkening the “reeds.”

It’s never too late to make changes.
