Stretching Green-wing by Misted-Dream Stretching Green-wing by Misted-Dream

Here's my Michigan Duck Stamp painting for this year! The first of three duck stamps total this year. The judging was yesterday and I didn't place (as I expected). Richard Clifton won with his lovely painting. However, I did make it through to the second round (a first for me in this particular contest), but that's where it stopped. I guess they didn't like the fact that the bg was so dark--something to note for future contests. :) Anyways, enjoy!

This is about 9 3/4" X 7" acrylic on masonite. Also my first piece using my airbrush. ;) Refs thanks to Lesley off of WetCanvas.

For Sale: Matted with a white mat. Note me if interested.

You're welcome! I see what you mean - but to someone who feels like they're still very much an amateur, people like you are so inspiring already. :)

Question: Did you prime the Masonite board with anything before painting on it? I do for oil paint, but if I dont have to for acrylics I would like to eliminate that step from the process! lol
