Two hunters gifted me a mallard duck they had just killed today near the end of my outdoor painting session. They explained to me how to clean it and tips for cooking. I couldn’t refuse such a gorgeous creature- I’ll honor it in a painting..more work to do- I’ve painted still before, but never of a pre-meal animal, Renaissance style..
Plein aire by the light of the moon, looking East.
