Duck Hunters On Canvas


Another windy day here on the prairie....


a good day to sit inside and paint!

I have plenty of actual paint projects
I could be doing,
but
this morning I thought it 
would be fun to do
some virtual painting
with Corel Painter on the computer....

FIRST....
an oil on canvas
I'll call it "Quiet On the Water"



Another oil on canvas....

"The Cold Walk Back"
(I know, imaginative right?)





My favorite subject 
also done with oils

"Max, Happy and Wet"




There you have it,
three oil paintings done in about an hour
no drying time whatsoever!

I'll top it off 
with a nice collage 
of the complete
HUNTING experience....






And one final greeting....








from us duck hunters!
(and us duck watchers)

I like the cold walk back, but where did you find the cold? I'm so ready for cool temps.

Looks like they had a great time -- love the mosaic and the "paintings." :)

The collage is awesome. I'm a bit jealous - I was to head to N. Dakota to do some duck hunting with my dad but the trip got cancelled. I sure miss the prairie potholes. Maybe next year.
