Mandarin Duck - Wood Art by amazoncanvas Mandarin Duck - Wood Art by amazoncanvas
I found this amazing piece of wood with dark swirls and water current highlights, my thought was to draw a duck, maybe some lotus flowers, but I also want to add a few fishes. So, this is what I've got for the most beautiful duck in the world (for me anyway) - Mandarin Duck.

This is a great piece using the reflection and grain in the wood. It is hard to determine what might be painted and what belongs to the color of the wood. Almost like an optical illusion.

Thank you very much. Everything you see are of natural wood color and grain - no paint at all.

This is remarkable, absolutely remarkable. The best piece in your gallery, in my opinion. The shape of the reflection pieces are just perfect, and so are the colours. It's hard enough to get that many different shades of wood for a Mandarin Duck in the first place, let alone double it so you have different ones in the water. This is absolutely beautiful. I am just... I can't even find words to express how much I love this.

I can only imagine the amount of planning that went into positioning the duck within the ripples around him. I also like the way the fish swim between the swirls of water/wood grain.

That is correct! Finding and positioning the duck to the ripples was time consuming but it was all worth it. Thanks for the comment.
