Ducks on Lake Huron: Winter

It is fascinating to watch Lake Huron begin freezing in the winter. I happened to see some brave mallards swimming in the cold water between ice a few weeks ago, and decided to paint this scene.

This was done in oil over a base of acrylic, with a palette of ultramarine and cerulean blues, titanium white, burnt umber, yellow ochre and cadmium yellow medium.
