WHC Federal Duck Stamp Entry

I’m anxiously awaiting to hear how my pintail painting faired this year in the WHC Federal Duck Stamp Competition (Canada). It was a tough one but in the end I’m pleased with how it came together. I’m still learning on how to paint birds. So much intricate details involved!

Fingers crossed…

Dabbling with Duck Skulls

Although fly fishing is one of my favourite passions, hunting is a close second. Whether it’s wading in a swamp calling ducks or sitting in a tree stand waiting for a grey ghost to appear, hunting is one of my favourite ways to spend my time outdoors.

Drake Woodduck, Drake Mallard, Hen Mallard, and a Drake Pintail. Of the dabbling (puddle) ducks, these four have some of the most colourful bills. I figured they'd make a perfect quartet. Original pencil artwork by Nick Laferreire
