Wood Duck Art - Watercolor Painting

I painted this for my dad - he loves wood ducks. He lives on a huge lake (Lake Murray in Lexington SC) and has made it his life mission to create habitat for wood ducks. He has put duck boxes up all over the lake, which is 100s of acres. This summer he was rewarded with a family of babies. Unfortunately they are too shy to get a good picture, but can you imagine how cute a baby wood duck is??? For my painting though, an adult will have to do. They make perfect watercolor subject with their bright colors with sharp contrasts of white.
