Stage 3; I've finished blocking in the main areas of colour, except for the ducks themselves, and when this is dry I can start painting in some texture, light and detail. At this stage I can stand back and really see if the painting is working.
I'm working from a field painting made on the spot, although I've changed some of the elements around in this studio painting for a more pleasing composition. Sometimes a real life scene will present itself to be painted almost without any changes or editting required, at other times a picture will be the result of certain elements of the landscape rearranged in the artist's mind to evoke the nature of a place or a habitat.

Hi Chris,
Good to see you're updating again.
I really enjoyed reading your book and all the technical and non-technical info behind your images. You're an inspiration.
I'm amazed by the quality and freshness of your acrylic sketches.
Do you have a specific color palette you use?
Thanks, Erik

Hello Chris
I'm a big fan of your work, (sort of a bird artist myself)and was looking forward to your "studio" posts. I'ts amazing how you make the painting look photo-realistic even when it's not finished! those reflections in the mud are amazing... can't wait to see it finished!

Hi Erik, my palette for this painting is mainly cerulean blue (next to white my most used colour, probably), indian red, deep violet, yellow ochre, cadmium yellow and cadmium orange. There are few other colours for some of the darker areas. I try not to use more than about three pigments in any one colour mix.
