Rainy Day Respite - Pintail (New Painting)

I finished it! This painting is one that has been in progress for a few months even though it is a small piece at 9"x12". The reason for the delay was figuring out exactly where to put the raindrops and the bits of habitat. What excited me about doing this painting is the fact that the pintail drake is standing in the rain. So often, waterfowl is painted with perfect light and perfect weather, but this is more typical of the winter weather this duck may encounter - especially where I live in Oregon!
