Black-bellied Whistling Duck

This is another preliminary study for a larger work;  is very useful to perform this type of paint because we recognize aspects of expression, color and shape that can be highlighted in the final painting.
Technique: watercolor and gouache on  moleskine. 


  1. Beautiful work. The detail in this study is amazing -- love the green hues in the water and the alert expression of the duck.

  2. Was this painting done in Colombia? The Black-bellied Whistling Duck is one of my favorite Austin, TX summer birds. It's fun to remember that so many of our favorite North American species aren't just North American birds.

  3. Hello Anna, actually was painted in Colombia, I am very glad you like it; Joy and Maria thank you!!
