Mallard - Painted in Acrylics on Stretched Canvas. 
Size: 31cm x 23cm.
Price: £60 includes this beautiful original painting and postage
and packing (within the UK).

I decided to paint this mallard because I was wanting to expand my collection of wildlife/nature paintings. My hope was to have it ready to enter in the exhibition earlier in the year, but I missed the deadline.

I love the effectiveness of the colours and reflection. I love the eye. I’m pleased with the realism I managed to achieve with this painting. I’m proud of this painting.

For me, art gives me peace and serenity that I struggle to find elsewhere. It’s an opportunity for me to express myself. I’m still discovering my artistic voice but this painting encouraged me to keep going with it.

I used my own photograph, of a mallard at Swan Lakes in Yateley, as a reference photo for this painting.

For the month of August, I’m donating 25% of all sales to the charity The Vine Centre in Aldershot. They offer art therapy and is a charity close to my heart. Check them out!
