Idling eiders

Comments

I liked the last one and I think this is even better

Simply delightful Emma, superbly painted.

Excellent Emma, great form and color, great the way you have them in differing positions, I use to watch rafts of these in Scotland when I visited my Daughter up there. nice one.

Just beautiful colours everthing Emma!!

You have captured the varying poses so well here Emma and I like how you’ve painted the water.

So many different poses - very good

A lovely composition and palette. Love the gentle energy of the piece.

Such a lovely painting Emma, you are so good at painting birds.

Thank you all for the lovely comments!
