Mandarin Ducks--Waiting Game

Oil on Canvas 91.5 x 91.5 cm

As I have enjoyed this colorful ducks,I started to paint,this painting,at the same time as the previous Mandarin Ducks.This painting has taken me much longer to paint, as it is much larger and the ducks were painted with flowering rhododendrons,at the pond from Shanghai Zoo.
