"Delihla's Duck" Contemporary Figurative Oil Painting by
Arizona Artist Mary Opat
11" x 14" Oil on Stretched Canvas
On day 21 of the 30 day challenge, I worked on this little
painting of my grand-niece, Delihla. The photo that I used for
reference had dead grass and the color seemed a little washed out
compared to the saturated color in her clothing. The first time I worked on it,
I think I over-compensated and the duck got lost in the colorful weeds.
I hope this is a good compromise. I'll be letting it dry for a couple of
weeks before I varnish and send it off to Maegan.
