Freshening Up - painting for sale (edit) by rieke-b Freshening Up - painting for sale (edit) by rieke-b
Watercolour painting "Madam's freshening up", painted from one of my own photos. :star:For sale:star:

Painting this felt sometimes a little like doing calligraphy...

Original, A4 (29,7x21cm), watercolour paper 200g/m², varnished with acrylic matt spray film and is unframed.

You can buy it at Etsy here: [link]

The mallard (Anas platyrhynchos) is the biggest and most well-known dabbling duck of Europe. The camouflage-coloured females aren't as noticeable as the drakes with their shimmering green heads, but the females produce the characteristic quacking call. They're often half-tame town birds and eat many different things. Feeding ducks with bread can severely change the ecology of a water habitat, though!


Aquarell-Gemälde "Madame macht sich frisch", nach einem eigenen Foto gemalt. :star:Zu verkaufen!:star:

Dies zu malen hat sich teilweise wie Kalligraphie angefühlt...

Original Aquarell-Gemälde, A4 (29,7x21cm), Aquarellpapier 200g/m², mit Acryl-Fixierspray (matt) fixiert, nicht gerahmt.

Hier bei Etsy erhältlich: [link]

Die Stockente (Anas platyrhynchos) ist die größte und bekannteste heimische Schwimmente. Die tarnfarbenen Weibchen sind längst nicht so auffällig wie die Erpel mit ihrem schillern grünen Kopf, doch von den Weibchen stammt der charakteristisch quakende, in der Tonhöhe absinkende Ruf. Sie sind oft als halbzahme Stadtvögel anzutreffen und ernähren sich vielseitig. Die Fütterung von Enten mit Brot kann jedoch den ökologischen Zustand eines Gewässers stark verändern!

Very well done! Especially showing the shape of the duck with the different shades of color (mostly brown, but still...)!

(I still have tough time with watercolors, but you are just awesome! :) Well done indeed! :) )

Watercolours might be tricky in the beginning, but you just have to keep using them! It's so much fun...
