Beautiful realistic pastel painting of a mother duck and her ducklings. I came across these ducks on a walk along the Thames, in Kingston. The title came about because she really looks proud of her ducklings, I loved the little one in the foreground that's quacking. I have used a mix of gouache washes on pastelmat which I have then worked over with pastel.
Pastel on pastelmat, mounted and back board using a pH neutral and non acidic board.
