Duck Hunting - A Work in Progress

On the way into KAGS this morning I stopped to pick up a few of the cattails at the side of the road for the Still Life class since our theme today is duck hunting.

Bob brought in his camouflage hunting jacket and hat. Rather than bringing in some from his collection of ornamental decoys to have it more realistic he brought in a couple of his working decoys; one of a goose and the other of a duck.

Since it is illegal to bring in a real weapon he filled his rifle bag with cardboard of approximately the same shape and size as his rifle.

Lastly to complete the scene he brought in the most important thing to bring along when going hunting, a very large thermos of coffee.

I will post this painting at a later date once I have completed more of the painting.

Thank you for looking at my artwork.
