This is not for any special project or exhibition, I'm going to try & teach myself with this one so I can see how it's done. I've worked in black and white for long enough, and now I want to master colour. And make something a bit more complex.
But it's a good idea to start with a simple image. Why ducks? I don't know, I like them. I like teals especially.*
First, find your duck.
Image found on Google. Sorry, photographer, I did not make a note. If you are really good, you can find a real live duck and draw it in situ.
Next, draw your duck.
Coloured in ducks.
In my head, the final print will have the same kinds of colours as this Paul Klee painting, but we shall see.
* Actually am not entirely above sordid commerce. I noticed that little bird prints did really well at the RA Summer Show. Edition of 50 @ £150 a pop = not a bad day's work.
