An original watercolor painting of ducks
These are Wood Ducks, they live in swampy woodlands, where they nest in a hole in a tree.  They have strong claws for gripping on to the bark of the tree and perching on branches, one of the few ducks to have such adaptations.  The ducklings make a leap of faith when they leave the tree.  Indeed, they have been known to jump from 50 feet (15.24 m), landing without injury, before making their way to the safety of water.

Packaging & Materials
I have used an excellent quality watercolour paper and the finest of brushes to produce the tiny details which bring this painting to life.

The painting will be carefully wrapped in cellophane and protected with additional packing.  Likewise, I aim for my originals to arrive with you in the same condition that they left me.  I use the Royal Mail’s ‘Signed for Next Day’ or ‘International Tracked’ service.

A bit about me!

I love to capture the life within my paintings and also enjoy working with the watercolour medium to create fine detail.  I am continually adding to my portfolio and draw inspiration from amazing photographers and also the stunning North Devon environment.
