Eider ducks and cormorants


Good one Emma, I think you've done a good job with acrylics!

Very successful painting, Emma - I really like it...

Really beautiful, not obvious from this painting that acrylic is not your go to medium . I share the same feelings and just like you try it every now again but not with as much success 😁

Very nice water painting.

Thank you all for the encouragement!
