This was painted a long time ago when I was young. I really am not a wildlife painter but I took a stab at it. I really did get into the real and not so real foliage. I a not sure if I was doing real things but at the time I probably thought that I was. The black and white shown below the colored painting has no purpose other than to show the value contrast in the painting.
The Minnesota shoreline of some lake is pretty much authentic looking as I have painted many times the shores of the lakes in the state. The sky also seems to be one that I have studied for many different kinds of paintings. I think I have done more watercolor paintings as well as pastel paintings creating this same sky.
Artists sometimes says that they will return to a painting but it really is not a good idea.. Maybe a newer pose of some Canada geese on the water would be worth a try instead.
