Mandarin Duck, by Leada Wood

This is an 8x8 mixed media acrylic painting on canvas that is a part of my Chinese New Year series. These are the most amazing ducks and are considered very lucky!

  1. Leada, I love the brightness of this piece! The background works very well behind the duck. Is this a collaged or transferred background? P.S. I turned on the comments option for you.

  2. Vernita, the backgrounds are Chinese newspapers that are collaged onto canvas board. I painted them all red to keep the series cohesive and used different elements of Feng Shui that are considered lucky.

  3. Very nice! So effective for the series. I love the context of this series.
