Another go at the Duck

This monochrome oil sketch of a duck is done in transparent paint.

Duck - transparent oil on linen, 9" x 12". 2014

I recently painted and posted a painting of a duck, but I never really took to the painting.  So today I started again with a different approach.  This painting is done using transparent oil paint (i.e. I didn't use any white).

Using this approach helped me to quickly focus in on the center of interest and bring it along without overworking, something I failed to do in the previous version.
