Original Contemporary Wildlife Portrait Painting by Diane Griffiths.
Acrylic on 1.5″ box canvas with painted sides, 76x51cm/30×20″ (2015).
I took a compositional risk with this painting; splitting the canvas right down the middle. My female mallard is preening herself which allowed me to explore abstract shapes created alongside the flow of the feathers. The other half of the canvas is a sharp contrast with horizontal lines, emanating out from the duck.
