Pintail Flush 8" x 10" acrylic

This painting was inspired by two places. While in Maryland, I got several great photographs of pintails in various positions which were laid out in a sketch. The original plan was to use the Maryland background but after hunting at a friend's place this past weekend, I decided to use his pond as the backdrop. What inspired the change was a group of mallard that took off from this spot in the same manner as the pintail in my idea.
