A duck

Today I sketched a duck, unfortunately not “plein air” but from a photo I took in Tasmania under the Richmond Bridge. I was very mindful though of the skeletal structure. I find it fascinatingly productive to visualise the skeleton, which you can “Google”, and base the sketch on it. When you look at the bone structure, all of a sudden putting it all together is much easier. This was a quick sketch in watercolour and some white gel pen on top, as I didn’t have the patience to draw out all the feathers. Duck_sketch
