Duck! Acrylic on Gesso Board 5x7

Duck! 5x7 at about 50%. About 30 minutes of actual painting time. The gel medium gets a touch streaky if  you put too much on at once, until a nice base is built up. Started this guy with a sienna underpainting to determine tone. Adding local colors and more tone here. What will get tricky on this one is the weird way that the light bounces off the background and turns the thin spots in the Duck! (i.e. the neck) to an translucent orange type thing. Hopefully next session I can clean it up and finish it off.
