Illustration Friday: pale


It rose up in the winter night, it was a very large pale duck.


The Big Duck or Duck House
My submission for Illustration Friday's "pale" theme.
Location: Along Rt.24 North of Rt. 27 by 1.25 miles. On the west side of the road.Suffolk County-NYLatitude: N40 degrees 53.28Longitude: W72 degrees 33.44. I have painted this duck house before here as a daytime piece. I made this one that resembles how the people of Suffolk decorate the duck at holiday time.
A tribute to the artist Andrew Wyeth:

I am gigling. I thought it was just an illustration until I read the description. I wonder what happens inside the duck house? Perhaps a lot of quacking? Heheh.

It's so cool that your lovely illustration is a real place. It's a perfect storybook image.

Wow, your technique is pristine!
I wonder what it looks like inside...
"You are invited to afternoon tea take Rt. 24 north of Rt. 27 it'll be the first duck on the left!"
Who lives in a duck...

Oh well done! Bravo! Maybe it's a "cold duck", but she looks so serene in the snow.

This is priceless. The colours are very night-time and wintry. I like the expression on the duck's face.
