Mallard Duck: Female

Continuing work on the female mallard.

Building the second layer of color. This surface will take even the cheaper pencils, the studio level and throw-away pencils, so I am using them on the bottom layers.

I did do a wash of solvent, especially on the water to mimic watercolor and the fluidness of water.

Although the complimentary colors are beginning to be covered, their inclusion is adding to the richness of the final colors. This will give much more dimension to the duck than the photograph.
