Final (duck) leg of work for my exhibition

I still have six more prints to do for my exhibition and here is the progress of the first three of those. A white duck, a Tufted duck and a tree and water scene from the Lake District. There’s another Lake District one to do and two small flower based images…all before the 4th June. Oh how my hand and back are aching! I love doing this though, so when I’m in ‘flow’ I really don’t notice at all. Mixing the right colours has proved to be a, shall we say, challenge, and can take easily half an hour alone. Its all coming together nicely though and I have a stack of framed prints ready and waiting to be taken to the gallery.

The first two stages of the White duck:

 

The first two stages of the Tufted Duck, can you see him starting to appear?

And the first two stages of the Lake District scene. This one I am doing dark to light, as I did my snow scene prints a while ago. It gives more depth to the colours for some images, although mixing the right colour can be a very time consuming process! This one will look very different when it’s finished.

Apologies for the colour representation! These are too big to scan and the light here is variable to say the least, darn English weather!  I’ll post some better photos of the finished prints when they are done.
