Evening Feed - Pintail 4" x 4" acrylic $225
This is an older painting that has been touched up a bit. It used to be more pink in tone and I felt it needed more of the oranges of sunset. This scene drake pintail feeds alone on shallow sheetwater to store energy for breeding activity and migration. This scene was observed in autumn so perhaps he got up and flew further south during the night.
