This is a wood duck carving from a Work Shop Project Plan. The painting was a real challenge for a colored blind old man. A lot of study and coaching from my son.

Nice work.

I like the form and the shimmer of highlights on the back. Painted objects are difficult to pull off. I couldn’t do as well, and I did not inherit the color-blindness.

Tom,

Your duck is exceptionally well done and even more amazing for someone who is color-blind! Thanks for sharing.

Nice job, Tom. Now, can your wood duck come out and play with my Canada goose?

Tom, this looks great, and the result reminds me of a cousin of mine who lived back in Quebec (now deceased). He carved wooden ducks as a hobby. I remember seeing them when I was a teenager. You paint job is great also, nice work.. be proud of it.
